orinoco: fix TKIP countermeasure behaviour

Enable the port when disabling countermeasures, and disable it on
enabling countermeasures.

This bug causes the response of the system to certain attacks to be
ineffective.

It also prevents wpa_supplicant from getting scan results, as
wpa_supplicant disables countermeasures on startup - preventing the
hardware from scanning.

wpa_supplicant works with ap_mode=2 despite this bug because the commit
handler re-enables the port.

The log tends to look like:

State: DISCONNECTED -> SCANNING

Scan requested (ret=0) - scan timeout 5 seconds

Fix this by making a local copy of shared skbs prior to mangeling them.
To avoid copying the skb unnecessarily move the skb_copy call below the
checks that don't need write access to the skb.

Also, move the assignment of nh_pos and h_pos below the skb_copy to point
to the correct skb.

It would be possible to avoid another resize of the copied skb by using
skb_copy_expand instead of skb_copy but that would make the patch more
complex. Also, shared skbs are a corner case right now, so the resize
shouldn't matter much.

only allowed while connected. Specify them with
