mwl8k build support

Description

There is now entry for the mwl8k driver in the build system.
I have successfully built and used the mwl8k driver for the WNR854T box. Documented here: https://forum.openwrt.org/viewtopic.php?id=15590&p=2

Its not stable enough to be a default package, but I want the ability to build it.

Patch for buildsupport included.

Thank you for your patch.

It was applied in 21077.

Does the mwl8k driver needs any firmware to work?

Replying to hauke:

Thank you for your patch.

It was applied in 21077.

Does the mwl8k driver needs any firmware to work?

Yes it needs FW but there is nowhere to get this FW today without extracting it from a windows driver. If it eventually turns up in the linux-firmware-tree we can add it to the build system. Perhaps we should add the extraction tool now?

Firmware extraction from Windows driver was described in https://forum.openwrt.org/viewtopic.php?pid=103243#p103243

Please also send this patch upstream to the mwl8k maintainers.

The first hack shouldn't go upstream to the mwl8k maintainers.

Upstreamable patch attached.
