Subject[032/289] ath9k: fix enabling ANI / tx monitor after bg scan
2.6.36-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let us know.

------------------

From: Luis R. Rodriguez <lrodriguez@atheros.com>

commit 48a6a468198aadb54bc5d3fdd065364d43ff5197 upstream.

ath9k's entire logic with SC_OP_SCANNING is incorrect due to the
way mac80211 currently implements the scan complete callback and
we handle it in ath9k. This patch removes the flag completely in
preference for the SC_OP_OFFCHANNEL which is really what we wanted.

The scanning flag was used to ensure we reset ANI to the old values
when we go back to the home channel, but if we are offchannel we
use some defaults. The flag was also used to re-enable the TX monitor.

Without this patch we simply never re-enabled ANI and the TX monitor
after going offchannel. This means that after one background
scan we are prone to noise issues and if we had a TX hang we would
not recover. To get this to work properly we must enable ANI after
we have configured the beacon timers, otherwise hardware acts really
oddly.

This patch has stable fixes which apply down to [2.6.36+], there
*may* be a to fix this on older kernels but requires a bit of
work since this patch relies on the new mac80211 flag
IEEE80211_CONF_OFFCHANNEL which was introduced as of 2.6.36.
