Commit 77be2c54c5bd 'mac80211: add vif to flush call' modifies the flush
operation prototype. Update r8192ee function accordingly.

This fixes the following compilation warnings:

  drivers/staging/rtl8192ee/core.c: At top level:
  drivers/staging/rtl8192ee/core.c:1599:2: warning: initialization from incompatible pointer type [enabled by default]
    .flush = rtl_op_flush,
  drivers/staging/rtl8192ee/core.c:1599:2: warning: (near initialization for ‘rtl92e_ops.flush’) [enabled by default]

Linux next gives a "heads up" that the flush function of staging driver r8192ee
needs to be adapted soon.

This can be seen with e.g. linux next-20140606 and x86 allmodconfig.

Also, r8192ee would benefit from the following patch:
