So this now popped up on me with current Linus' tree from a different
codepath, see below. Therefore I'd like to propose bringing my previous

Subject: [PATCH] iwlwifi: make locking in iwl_mvm_tx_mpdu() BH-safe

iwl_mvm_sta->lock can be taken from BH, and therefore BH must be disabled if
taking it from other contexts.

This fixes the lockdep warning below.
