Subject: [RFC 2/7] ath10k: Add support to process rx packet in thread

NAPI instance gets scheduled on a CPU core on which
the IRQ was triggered. The processing of rx packets
can be CPU intensive and since NAPI cannot be moved
to a different CPU core, to get better performance,
its better to move the gist of rx packet processing
in a high priority thread.

Add the init/deinit part for a thread to process the
receive packets.

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