    mac80211/iwlwifi: move virtual A-MDPU queue bookkeeping to iwlwifi · e4e72fb4

    This patch removes all the virtual A-MPDU-queue bookkeeping from
    mac80211. Curiously, iwlwifi already does its own bookkeeping, so
    it doesn't require much changes except where it needs to handle
    starting and stopping the queues in mac80211.
    
    To handle the queue stop/wake properly, we rewrite the software
    queue number for aggregation frames and internally to iwlwifi keep
    track of the queues that map into the same AC queue, and only talk
    to mac80211 about the AC queue. The implementation requires calling
    two new functions, iwl_stop_queue and iwl_wake_queue instead of the
    mac80211 counterparts.
