Hi Kees,

Sorry, I didnt notice this earlier, but, you made the change only to the stats timer
to use the new timer init APIs. Can you do the same for the cm_timer and terminate_timer
too for i40iw; so that things are consistent?

[ssaleem@...build6081 i40iw]$ grep "setup_timer" *
i40iw_cm.c:	setup_timer(&cm_core->tcp_timer, i40iw_cm_timer_tick,
i40iw_utils.c:	setup_timer(&iwqp->terminate_timer, i40iw_terminate_timeout,
i40iw_utils.c:	setup_timer(&devstat->stats_timer, i40iw_hw_stats_timeout,

Shiraz
