Send RSC counter to driver in set_key method, so that FW/driver
can drop the packet in PN check if received packet sequence
no is less than current RSC counter during group keys(GTK)
exchange.

Good idea, but ... does it really work this way? :-)

I don't think you should put that here, we keep this around in the key
structure forever. We can pass it out of band, I'd say?

It seems that perhaps we should make this more robust - there are
sometimes cases where the key can enable HW acceleration only after
some time. Not the case with ath10k though, but we should probably
handle that.

And once we do, we probably need this per TID, because the RX PN might
have moved around, or we look up the max over all TIDs. All the more
reason to pass it out of band.

Another reason to pass it out of band would be to tell the driver that
indeed it's *not* maintained over the lifetime of the key, unlike the
other fields which are maintained (because constant) over the lifetime
of the key.
