Fix the following out-of-bounds warning:

net/wireless/wext-spy.c:178:2: warning: 'memcpy' offset [25, 28] from the object at 'threshold' is out of the bounds of referenced subobject 'low' with type 'struct iw_quality' at offset 20 [-Warray-bounds]

The problem is that the original code is trying to copy data into a
couple of struct members adjacent to each other in a single call to
memcpy(). This causes a legitimate compiler warning because memcpy()
overruns the length of &threshold.low and &spydata->spy_thr_low. As
these are just a couple of members, fix this by copying each one of
them in separate calls to memcpy().

Also, while there, use sizeof(threshold.qual) instead of
sizeof(struct iw_quality)) in another call to memcpy()
above.

This helps with the ongoing efforts to globally enable -Warray-bounds
and get us closer to being able to tighten the FORTIFY_SOURCE routines
on memcpy().

It would've been really simple to stick to 80 columns here (and
everywhere in the patch), please do that.

Also, why not just use struct assigments?

	spydata->spy_thr_low = threshold->low;

etc.

Seems far simpler (and shorter lines).
