mac80211: fix PS-Poll handling

My commit below broken PS-Poll handling. In case the driver
has no frames buffered, driver_release_tids will be 0, but
calling find_highest_prio_tid() with 0 as a parameter is
not a good idea:
fls(0) - 1 = -1.
This bug caused mac80211 to think that frames were buffered
in the driver which in turn was confused because mac80211
was asking to release frames that were not reported to
On iwlwifi, this led to the WARNING below:
