mac80211: use more bits for ack_frame_id
It turns out that this wasn't a good idea, I hit a test failure in hwsim due to this. That particular failure was easily worked around, but it raised questions: if an AP needs to, for example, send action frames to each connected station, the current limit is nowhere near enough (especially if those stations are sleeping and the frames are queued for a while.) Shuffle around some bits to make more room for ack_frame_id to allow up to 8192 queued up frames, that's enough for queueing 4 frames to each connected station, even at the maximum of 2007 stations on a single AP. We take the bits from band (which currently only 2 but I leave 3 in case we add another band) and from the hw_queue, which can only need 4 since it has a limit of 16 queues.
