mac80211: rework TX filtered frame code

This reworks the code for TX filtered frames, splitting it out to
a new function to handle those cases, making the clear instruction
a flag and renaming a few things to be easier to understand and
less Atheros hardware specific. Finally, it also makes the comments
explain more.

* This code races in the following way:
*
* (1) STA sends frame indicating it will go to sleep and does so
* (2) hardware/firmware adds STA to filter list, passes frame up
* (3) hardware/firmware processes TX fifo and suppresses a frame
* (4) we get TX status before having processed the frame and
* knowing that the STA has gone to sleep.
*
* This is actually quite unlikely even when both those events are
* processed from interrupts coming in quickly after one another or
* even at the same time because we queue both TX status events and
* RX frames to be processed by a tasklet and process them in the
* same order that they were received or TX status last. Hence, there
* is no race as long as the frame RX is processed before the next TX
* status, which drivers can ensure, see below.
*
* Note that this can only happen if the hardware or firmware can
* actually add STAs to the filter list, if this is done by the
* driver in response to set_tim() (which will only reduce the race
* this whole filtering tries to solve, not completely solve it)
* this situation cannot happen.
*
* To completely solve this race drivers need to make sure that they
* (a) don't mix the irq-safe/not irq-safe TX status/RX processing
* functions and
* (b) always process RX events before TX status events if ordering
* can be unknown, for example with different interrupt status
* bits.
