From: Ben Greear <greearb@candelatech.com>

While stress-testing an IPQ4019 based AP, sometimes the firmware and/or
radio hardware crashes hard enough that it cannot recover.  In this case,
no wifi can work on that radio again until user-space takes some
action (such as reboot, or possibly rmmod/modprobe).

Provide a sysfs file so that watchdog or other tools can check to
see if radios are in such a state and take appropriate action.
