Subject[17/89] brcmsmac: fix tx queue flush infinite loop
3.2-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.

------------------
From: Stanislaw Gruszka <sgruszka@redhat.com>

commit f96b08a7e6f69c0f0a576554df3df5b1b519c479 upstream.

This patch workaround live deadlock problem caused by infinite loop
in brcms_c_wait_for_tx_completion(). I do not consider the patch as
the proper fix, which should fix the real reason of tx queue flush
failure, but patch helps with system lockup.
