Subject: [PATCH 3/3] ath10k: Set wiphy flag to trigger sta disconnect on hardware restart

From: Rakesh Pillai <pillair@...eaurora.org>

Currently after the hardware restart triggered from the driver,
the station interface connection remains intact, since a disconnect
trigger is not sent to userspace. This can lead to a problem in
hardwares where the wifi mac sequence is added by the firmware.

After the firmware restart, during subsytem recovery, the firmware
restarts its wifi mac sequence number. Hence AP to which our device
is connected will receive frames with a  wifi mac sequence number jump
to the past, thereby resulting in the AP dropping all these frames,
until the frame arrives with a wifi mac sequence number which AP was
expecting.

To avoid such frame drops, its better to trigger a station disconnect
upon the  hardware restart. Indicate this support via a WIPHY flag
to mac80211, if the hardware params flag mentions the support to
add wifi mac sequence numbers for TX frames in the firmware.

All the other hardwares, except WCN3990, are not affected by this
change, since the hardware params flag is not set for any hardware
except for WCN3990
