Subject[19/36] ath9k: fix yet another buffer leak in the tx aggregation code
2.6.34-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let us know.

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

commit 4cee78614cfa046a26c4fbf313d5bbacb3ad8efc upstream.

When an aggregation session is being cleaned up, while the tx status
for some frames is being processed, the TID is flushed and its buffers
are sent out.

Unfortunately that left the pending un-acked frames unprocessed, thus
leaking buffers. Fix this by reordering the code so that those frames
are processed first, before the TID is flushed.
