Subject[PATCH] ath10k: work around uninitialized vht_pfr variable
As clang points out, the vht_pfr is assigned to a struct member
without being initialized in one case:

drivers/net/wireless/ath/ath10k/mac.c:7528:7: error: variable 'vht_pfr' is used uninitialized whenever 'if' condition
is false [-Werror,-Wsometimes-uninitialized]
if (!ath10k_mac_can_set_bitrate_mask(ar, band, mask,
drivers/net/wireless/ath/ath10k/mac.c:7551:20: note: uninitialized use occurs here
arvif->vht_pfr = vht_pfr;
drivers/net/wireless/ath/ath10k/mac.c:7528:3: note: remove the 'if' if its condition is always true
if (!ath10k_mac_can_set_bitrate_mask(ar, band, mask,
drivers/net/wireless/ath/ath10k/mac.c:7483:12: note: initialize the variable 'vht_pfr' to silence this warning
u8 vht_pfr;

Add an explicit but probably incorrect initialization here.
I suspect we want a better fix here, but chose this approach to
illustrate the issue.
