mac80211: defer tailroom counter manipulation when roaming

During roaming, the crypto_tx_tailroom_needed_cnt counter
will often take values 2,1,0,1,2 because first keys are
removed and then new keys are added. This is inefficient
because during the 0->1 transition, synchronize_net must
be called to avoid packet races, although typically no
packets would be flowing during that time.

To avoid that, defer the decrement (2->1, 1->0) when keys
are removed (by half a second). This means the counter
will really have the values 2,2,2,3,4 ... 2, thus never
reaching 0 and having to do the 0->1 transition.

Note that this patch entirely disregards the drivers for
which this optimisation was done to start with, for them
the key removal itself will be expensive because it has
to synchronize_net() after the counter is incremented to
remove the key from HW crypto. For them the sequence will
look like this: 0,1,0,1,0,1,0,1,0 (*) which is clearly a
lot more inefficient. This could be addressed separately,
during key removal the 0->1->0 sequence isn't necessary.

(*) it starts at 0 because HW crypto is on, then goes to
    1 when HW crypto is disabled for a key, then back to
    0 because the key is deleted; this happens for both
    keys in the example. When new keys are added, it goes
    to 1 first because they're added in software; when a
    key is moved to hardware it goes back to 0

* The reason for the delayed tailroom needed decrementing is to
* make roaming faster: during roaming, all keys are first deleted
* and then new keys are installed. The first new key causes the
* crypto_tx_tailroom_needed_cnt to go from 0 to 1, which invokes
* the cost of synchronize_net() (which can be slow). Avoid this
* by deferring the crypto_tx_tailroom_needed_cnt decrementing on
* key removal for a while, so if we roam the value is larger than
* zero and no 0->1 transition happens.
*
* The cost is that if the AP switching was from an AP with keys
* to one without, we still allocate tailroom while it would no
* longer be needed. However, in the typical (fast) roaming case
* within an ESS this usually won't happen.
