wlcore: always set default wep key idx (INTERNAL)

The driver doesn't configure the FW default wep key
in case it thinks it's identical to what was set. However,
the FW clears the default tx wep key index as part of removing
that key. This leads to key index 0 being used instead of
the correct key index in case of disconnect and reconnect
to the same network. This of course prevents any TX to the
reconnected network.
Fix it by always configuring the default wep key requested
by mac80211.
Also add a debug log for op_set_default_key_idx like the
rest of mac80211 ops.
