Subject: Divide error in minstrel_ht_get_tp_avg()

Hello.

The following woe happened on my home router running as a Wi-Fi AP with
MT7612:

```

`faddr2line` says it is this:

```
430 int
431 minstrel_ht_get_tp_avg(struct minstrel_ht_sta *mi, int group, int rate,
432 int prob_avg)
433 {

435 unsigned int ampdu_len = 1;

441 if (minstrel_ht_is_legacy_group(group))

443 else
444 ampdu_len = minstrel_ht_avg_ampdu_len(mi);

446 nsecs = 1000 * overhead / ampdu_len;
^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^
```

So, it seems `minstrel_ht_avg_ampdu_len()` can return 0, which is not
really legitimate.

Looking at `minstrel_ht_avg_ampdu_len()`, I see the following:

```
16:#define MINSTREL_SCALE 12

18:#define MINSTREL_TRUNC(val) ((val) >> MINSTREL_SCALE)
```

```
401 static unsigned int
402 minstrel_ht_avg_ampdu_len(struct minstrel_ht_sta *mi)
403 {

406 if (mi->avg_ampdu_len)
407 return MINSTREL_TRUNC(mi->avg_ampdu_len);
```

So, likely, `mi->avg_ampdu_len` is non-zero, but it's too small, hence
right bitshift makes it zero.

Should there be some protection against such a situation?

Felix, could you maybe check this? Looks like you were the last one to
overhaul that part of code.

Thanks!
