Subject[PATCH] rtl8xxxu: Fix wifi low signal strength issue of RTL8723BU
Date
The WiFi tx power of RTL8723BU is extremely low after booting. So
the WiFi scan gives very limited AP list and it always fails to
connect to the selected AP. This module only supports 1x1 antenna
and the antenna is switched to bluetooth due to some incorrect
register settings.

This commit hand over the antenna control to PTA, the wifi signal
will be back to normal and the bluetooth scan can also work at the
same time. However, the btcoexist still needs to be handled under
different circumstances. If there's a BT connection established,
the wifi still fails to connect until disconneting the BT.
