Realtek 8723be's ant_sel parameter stops working since 4.15.0-33.36.

The commit that causes the regression works in mainline, so there are
some functional dependencies are not in 4.15.

Finding those dependencies can be hard since I don't have the hardware
to test with, also pulling new commits may cause new regression. So the
safest way to deal with this bug is to simply revert the regression

User confirmed reverting the commit can fix the issue.

[Regression Potential]
Low. Realtek 8723be works without this commit.
