Subject: [RFC 6/7] ath10k: Add deliver to stack from thread context

When the receive packets are submitted to the stack
from a thread context, the NAPI handle should be passed
as NULL to the function ieee80211_rx_napi. This will
make sure that the packets are submitted to stack via
non-napi method

Tested-on: WCN3990 hw1.0 SNOC WLAN.HL.3.1-01040-QCAHLSWMTPLZ-1
