Subject: [PATCH AUTOSEL 5.6 079/149] ath11k: Fixing dangling pointer issue upon peer delete failure

From: Vikas Patel <vikpatel@...eaurora.org>

[ Upstream commit 58595c9874c625ceb7004960d8e53b9226abdc92 ]

When there is WMI command failure, 'peer->sta' was not getting
cleaned up, and mac80211 frees the 'sta' memory, which is causing
the below page fault.

Cleaning up the sta pointer in ath11k whenever peer delete command
is sent.

Unable to handle kernel paging request at virtual address 200080000006a
pgd = ffffffc02a774000
