Summary0001288: Bug in wash whit drivers ath9k & ath9k_htc rssi = 00

wash show rssi to "00" whit ath9k & ath9k_htc devices "rest of chipsets works fine"

This affects kernels 3.14 & 3.15 since ath9k introducing the feature "wake on lan"

WoL on or off same results ...

Airodump-ng 1.3 beta2 same ...see power to 00 , but after appears beta3 and reapired de power on ath9k and ath9_htc in this kerneles.

I think wash need a patch , to work properly whit ath9k & ath9k_htc in the newest kernels 3.14 or better.

Steps To Reproduce

1 - chipset atheros ar9000 using ath9k or ath9k_htc
2 - airmon-ng start wlanX (YOUR INTERFACE NUMBER IN X POSITION)
3 - wash -i monX ( X = number of mon interface )
4 - all rssi appears whit 00

I'm on the kali-rolling distro (using the 2016.1 as the starting install) and I can reproduce this issue on an TP-LINK TL-WN722N USB wifi adapter with an Atheros AR9271 802.11n chipset using the ath9k_htc driver.

wash 1.5.2 will report all RSSI values as "00", but aircrack-ng 1:1.2-0~rc4-0kali3 will actually give power values. I am not sure why one appears to work but the other does not.

In case it matters, uname -a reports:
Linux kali 4.3.0-kali1-amd64 0000001 SMP Debian 4.3.5-1kali1 (2016-02-11) x86_64 GNU/Linux
