    According to 802.11-2012 13.3.1, a mesh STA should assign an AID
    upon receipt of a mesh peering open frame rather than using the link
    id of the peer.  Using the peer link id has two potential issues:
    it may not be unique among the peers, and by its nature it is random,
    so the TIM may not compress well.
    
    In preparation for allocating it properly, use sta->sta.aid, but keep
    the existing behavior of using the plid in the aid we send.
