When the driver sends a CQM RSSI threshold event, wpa_supplicant
queries the driver for the signal and noise values. However, it
is possible that by that time the station has already disconnected
from the AP, so these values are no longer valid. In this case,
indicate that these values are invalid by setting them to
WPA_INVALID_NOISE.
Previously a value of 0 would be reported, which may be confusing as
this is a valid value.
Since nl80211_get_link_signal() and nl80211_get_link_noise() already
set invalid values for a case of failure, just use the value set by
these functions even if they fail.
