Hi!

In this update, I update ieee80211_sample and complete
ieee80211_ratectl_none templete.

* rename ieee80211_rc_sample* to ieee80211_sample*. this seems to be more
harmonious.
* modify ieee80211_sample to let it use the latest net80211-ratectl
features.
* fix some errors in ieee80211_sample.
* complete the ieee80211_ratectl_none templete with newly added
net80211-ratectl functions.

You will need to add wlan_sample to sys/conf/files to make ieee80211_sample
compiled.

Thanks!

Chenchong
