IEEE 802.11 - 2016 forbids mixing MPDUs with different keyIDs in one
A-MPDU. Drivers supporting A-MPDUs and Extended Key ID must actively
enforce that requirement due to the available two unicast keyIDs.

Allow driver to signal mac80211 that they will not check the keyID in
MPDUs when aggregating them and that they expect mac80211 to stop Tx
aggregation when rekeying a connection using Extended Key ID.

This is now just the simple and obvious solution for the A-MPDU mixing
problem. Just stopping Tx aggregation may not be very elegant, but for
drivers like iwlwifi - which can't control how many MPDUs can be
aggregated - the sane solution.
Once we have more cards supporting A-MPDU and Extended Key ID it may make
sense to add another mechanism, like the proposed Key ID border signal.
But then maybe not...

The patch is looking bigger than it really is, It's moving some code
around to clean up the logic and replace ieee80211_hw_key_replace() with
ieee80211_pairwise_rekey() which is then of course no longer installing
the keys to the HW.
That way we can have the "special cases" for unicast key crypto handling
in one function, for both HW and SW crypto.
(Which so far are PTK0 rekey and Extended Key ID A-MPDU keyID mixing.)

Not so nice is the use of WLAN_STA_BLOCK_BA. We only have to make sure
no new Tx aggregation sessions can be started but block both. It just
seems to be overkill to add a more granular control here.
WLAN_STA_BLOCK_BA is also used when suspending, so with some bad timing
Extended Key ID or PTK0 rekeys can unlock the lock from suspend.
It just looks pretty harmless, since a suspend will disconnect us anyhow.
I can of course add something like a lock counter, but that again seems
to be overkill for now. (After all this is intended to be the minimal
solution to get the job done:-)

I've of course ran some tests with the patch and can confirm that this
seems to solves the observed MPDU corruptions with mvm cards while not
causing undesired side effects.

I've also uploaded two captures taken on a STA connected to an AP and
uploaded them again to https://www.awhome.eu/index.php/s/AJJXBLsZmzHdxpX
iwlwifi-fixed.pcap.gz has been taken with an older, simpler and
incomplete patch, iwlwifi-fixed-final.pcap was then taken with the patch
provided here.

Note that I did not drop the unused variable "old" YueHaibing provided a
patch for on 29th of April. That is indeed a leftover from a older patch
without any function which somehow crept into the final patch.
I assume you'll apply his patch and prefer that I do not remove it here
also...
