From: Toke Høiland-Jørgensen <toke@toke.dk>

This moves the ath9k driver to use the mac80211 TXQ scheduling and
airtime accounting APIs, removing the corresponding state tracking
inside the driver.

Just discovered this while working on my follow-up:

> +	ieee80211_return_txq(sc->hw, queue);
>  }

After we evolved the API, this is now wrong, as ieee80211_return_txq()
should only be called while holding the right lock. I'll post a fixed
version tomorrow.
