iwlwifi: avoid a panic when unloading the module with RF Kill



When HW RF kill switch is set to kill the radio, our NIC issues an
interrupt after we stop the APM module. When we unload the module,
the driver disables and cleans the interrupts before stopping the
APM. So we have a real interrupt (inta not zero) pending.
When this interrupts pops up the tasklet has already been killed
and we crash.

Here is a logical description of the flow:

disable and clean interrupts
synchronize interrupts
kill the tasklet

stop the APM <<== creates an RF kill interrupt

free_irq <<== somehow our ISR is called here and we crash

Here is the panic message:
