commit 78feb35b8161acd95c33a703ed6ab6f554d29387 upstream.

My previous patch
34a5b4b6af104cf18eb50748509528b9bdbc4036 iwlwifi: do not re-configure
HT40 after associated

Fix the case of HT40 after association on specified AP, but it break the
association for some APs and cause not able to establish connection.
We need to address HT40 before and after addociation.
