Subject[ 048/175] iwlwifi: always monitor for stuck queues
3.3-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.

------------------
From: Johannes Berg <johannes.berg@intel.com>

commit 342bbf3fee2fa9a18147e74b2e3c4229a4564912 upstream.

If we only monitor while associated, the following
can happen:
- we're associated, and the queue stuck check
runs, setting the queue "touch" time to X
- we disassociate, stopping the monitoring,
which leaves the time set to X
- almost 2s later, we associate, and enqueue
a frame
- before the frame is transmitted, we monitor
for stuck queues, and find the time set to
X, although it is now later than X + 2000ms,
so we decide that the queue is stuck and
erroneously restart the device

It happens more with P2P because there we can
go between associated/unassociated frequently.
