[PATCH] tdls: teardown TDLS using wpas_drv_tlds_oper() if not external

When the device indicates to take care of TDLS operations the TDLS
setup is done calling wpas_drv_tdls_oper(). This patch does a similar
thing for the teardown. This fixes failure of teardown:

"TDLS: Could not find peer <mac> for link Teardown"

Hi Jouni,

While adding TDLS support to brcmfmac I got FAIL on teardown and
the mentioned message in the log. As the peer is not stored upon
the setup, I call the teardown directly and have the device figure
it out. Are there other operations from enum tdls_oper needed?
