Subject[016/289] ath9k: clean up / fix aggregation session flush
2.6.36-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let us know.

------------------
From: Felix Fietkau <nbd@openwrt.org>

commit 90fa539ca3f07323da5a90f5c8f4e5cd952875e7 upstream.

The tid aggregation cleanup is a bit fragile, as it discards failed
subframes in some places, and retransmits them in others. This could
block the cleanup of an existing aggregation session, if a retransmission
for a tid is issued, yet the tid is never scheduled again because of
the cleanup state.

Fix this by getting rid of as many subframes as possible, as early
as possible, and immediately transmitting pending subframes as regular
HT frames instead of waiting for the cleanup to complete.

Drop all pending subframes while keeping track of the Block ACK window
during aggregate tx completion to prevent sending out stale subframes,
which could confuse the receiver side.
