Subject: [PATCH v5 5/5] wcn36xx: Don't use the destroyed hal_mutex

ieee80211_unregister_hw() might invoke operations to stop the interface,
that uses the hal_mutex. So don't destroy it until after we're done
using it.

With this patch I can successfully (although with a SMD send timeout in the
shutdown path) start and stop the WCNSS PIL/remoteproc multiple times and the
wlan0 interface will come and go accordingly.

Will submit the necessary DT patches soon as well.

Changes since v4:
