Currently ath10k host enables power save support in station mode by
default for all firmwares but Power save for station mode still not supported
in some of the firmware versions. Which results in firmware crash while
issueing multiple scan commands.

Fix this problem by introducing new FW feature flag to check power save
support in firmware and then the firmware image can tell to ath10k that power
save mode is not supported in station mode.
