Good point, this changed should be removed.
The reason for this change was that we've noticed a difference between mesh beacon (built by the mac80211) and mesh actions (built by the supplicant) in the HT information IE.
In beacons the HT operational mode is Mixed Mode (0x11) while in actions it is None (0x00).
After a second look, it seems that it's the Supplicant that doesn't set the default value correctly.
We'll send an updated patch for it.
