Firmware sends peer sta kickout event to the driver
along with the reason code for a particular peer.

Currently the sta kickout event is delivered to the
upper layer without checking if the reason code is
valid or not. This causes frequent disconnection of
the STA.

Report low ack rssi event to mac80211 only if the reason
code is valid.

Tested HW: WCN3990
Tested FW: WLAN.HL.2.0-01188-QCAHLSWMTPLZ-1

Changes from v1:
- Added reason code in tlv structure, so that it does not break non-tlv wmi event parsing.

Adding extra members to this structure breaks structure consistency 
between FW and host driver since FW doesn't have such members.

struct wmi_peer_sta_kickout_event is used for parsing event from non-tlv 
firmwares and
struct wmi_tlv_peer_sta_kickout_event  is used for parsing event from 
tlv firmwares.
Both of the above structures maintain consistency with the respective 
FW.

struct wmi_peer_kick_ev_arg is used only for internal ath10k operations 
only.

Thanks,
Rakesh Pillai.

Yeah, I'm curious about that as well. If I'm guessing right,
WMI_PEER_STA_KICKOUT_REASON_UNSPECIFIED is supposed to mean that the
firmware does not support providing the reason code. Usually, but not
always, in the firmware interface value zero means unsupported. So why
would we want to ignore a kickout event which has a valid mac address
for the peer?

In what kind of cases is the firmware emitting these events? Is this
really the correct thing to do?

Yeah, this reason_code_valid boolean is set if WMI-TLV is used, but it
does not still mean that the reason code is valid. (There might be
WMI-TLV firmwares which do not provide the reason code.)
