When AP interface was stopped ssid and ssid_len from bss configuration
was not cleared. This caused a problem when after AP interface was stopped
another AP with shorter ssid was created. Previous ssid was not
overwriten by new one shorter.

I'll take the patch, sans the memset. If this was causing you trouble
you're most likely treating the SSID as a string, which it is not, so
you need to fix your driver.
