[RFC v2 00/10] ath10k high latency

This is the second version of the high latency patches (stuff common for
usb and sdio). The only difference when compared to the previous version
is that explicit calls to *local_bh_disable* have been added before calling

This is a requirement from mac80211.

Adding these calls should not introduce any problem for pcie since the
*local_bh_enable* and *local_bh_disable* functions will only increment
and decrement the softirq counter by one (if softirq's have already been
disabled before calling *local_bh_disable*, the call to *local_bh_enable*
will not enable them).

Adding these calls removes a warning generated by mac80211.

The previous RFC mentioned a problem related to this warning.
>From Linux 4.12, the warning was not handled correctly and the warning
was turned into an oops (I still don't know the reason for this).

This version fixes this.
