Subject: [PATCH] iwlwifi: work around clang -Wuninitialized warning

Clang incorrectly warns about an uninitialized variable:

drivers/net/wireless/intel/iwlwifi/mvm/sta.c:2114:12: error: variable 'queue' is used uninitialized whenever 'if'
      condition is false [-Werror,-Wsometimes-uninitialized]
                else if (WARN(1, "Missing required TXQ for adding bcast STA\n"))
                         ^~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
include/asm-generic/bug.h:130:36: note: expanded from macro 'WARN'
 #define WARN(condition, format...) ({                                   \
                                   ^~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
drivers/net/wireless/intel/iwlwifi/mvm/sta.c:2119:33: note: uninitialized use occurs here
                iwl_mvm_enable_txq(mvm, NULL, queue, 0, &cfg, wdg_timeout);
                                              ^~~~~
drivers/net/wireless/intel/iwlwifi/mvm/sta.c:2114:8: note: remove the 'if' if its condition is always true
                else if (WARN(1, "Missing required TXQ for adding bcast STA\n"))
                     ^~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
drivers/net/wireless/intel/iwlwifi/mvm/sta.c:2094:11: note: initialize the variable 'queue' to silence this warning
        int queue;
                 ^
                  = 0
1 error generated.

This cannot happen because the if/else if/else if block always
has one code path that is entered. However, we can simply
rearrange the code to let clang see this as well.
