We removed this from the Linux kernel because there was no driver using
it and we needed the space for other purposes. That said, it shouldn't
be too difficult to put it back by keeping the OUI/subtype also in the
skb->data rather than the rx_status (which is now full enough to no
longer have space for it, I believe)
