Hi John,

here's a new pull request containing just ath10k patches from Michal.

A major new feature is that we can now restart the firmware when it
crashes. For this Michal needed quite a few preparation patches. It's
now possible to to crash the firmware from debugfs, which makes it
easier to test the restart feature.

Michal also sent fixes and cleanup to various parts in the driver. Most
visible to users are RTS and fragmentation related fixes.

Please pull and do let me know if there are any problems.
