Subject: [PATCH AUTOSEL 5.4 106/130] iwlwifi: avoid endless HW errors at assert time

From: Mordechay Goodstein <mordechay.goodstein@...el.com>

[ Upstream commit 861bae42e1f125a5a255ace3ccd731e59f58ddec ]

Curretly we only mark HW error state "after" trying to collect HW data,
but if any HW error happens while colleting HW data we go into endless
loop. avoid this by setting HW error state "before" collecting HW data.
