rt2x00: Remove obsolete rt2x00queue_align_payload

Since commit d1c3a37c

clarify alignment docs, fix up alignment") removed the requirement
for a 4-byte aligned payload rt2x00queue_align_payload is obsolete
as mac80211 will align the payload when it passes the frame to the
net stack.

As a result we can remove the call to rt2x00queue_align_payload in the
rx path and since that's the last user we can remove
rt2x00queue_align_payload altogether.

One advantage is that we save some alignment operations for frames
that don't need to be aligned (for example beause they are not passed
to the net stack).
