Subject: [PATCH 3.13 029/149] ath9k: protect tid->sched check

3.13-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.

------------------

From: Stanislaw Gruszka <sgruszka@...hat.com>

commit 21f8aaee0c62708654988ce092838aa7df4d25d8 upstream.

We check tid->sched without a lock taken on ath_tx_aggr_sleep(). That
is race condition which can result of doing list_del(&tid->list) twice
(second time with poisoned list node) and cause crash like shown below:
