[PATCH] nl80211: set NLMODE correctly for AP interface

During supplicant/hostapd initialization, current implementation
sets NLMODE as AP only when hostapd has been started or for dynamically
created interfaces.
If supplicant is used for AP operations on statically created AP
interfaces, this also should also set NLMODE as AP.
This patch handles this case.
