Subject[008/105] ath9k: Fix kernel panic in AR2427
2.6.38-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let us know.

------------------
From: Mohammed Shafi Shajakhan <mshajakhan@atheros.com>

commit 61e1b0b00c793ad5a32fe2181c9f77115fed5dc4 upstream.

Kernel panic occurs just after AR2427 establishes connection with AP.
Unless aggregation is enabled we don't initialize the TID structure.
Thus accesing the elements of the TID structure when aggregation is
disabled, leads to NULL pointer dereferencing.
