    The IDLE handling in HW off-channel is broken right
    now since we turn off IDLE only when the off-channel
    period already started. Therefore, all drivers that
    use it today (only iwlwifi!) must support off-channel
    while idle, so playing with idle isn't needed at all.
    
    Off-channel in general, since it's no longer used for
    authentication/association, shouldn't affect PS, so
    also remove that logic.
    
    Also document a small caveat for reporting TX status
    from off-channel frames in HW remain-on-channel.
