madwifi prevents creation of WDS connection when max virtual APs exist

ath_vap_create prevents the creation of a WDS connection when the maximum number of virtual APs exist. The test is in source:madwifi/trunk/ath/if_ath.c@3844#L1257 . It should not apply this test to WDS connections since their creation does not increment the sc_nvaps variable and does not use up the resources that ath_maxvaps is trying to protect. See source:madwifi/trunk/ath/if_ath.c@3844#L1403 .
