Subject: [PATCH] mac80211: minstrel_ht: fix infinite loop because supported is
not being shifted
Currently the for-loop will spin forever if variable supported is
non-zero because supported is never changed. Fix this by adding in
the missing right shift of supported.
Addresses-Coverity: ("Infinite loop")
Fixes: 48cb39522a9d ("mac80211: minstrel_ht: improve rate probing for devices with static fallback")
