Subject: [PATCH wpan-next v2 07/14] net: mac802154: Rename the synchronous xmit worker

There are currently two driver hooks: one is synchronous, the other is
not. We cannot rely on driver implementations to provide a synchronous
API (which is related to the bus medium more than a wish to have a
synchronized implementation) so we are going to introduce a sync API
above any kind of driver transmit function. In order to clarify what
this worker is for (synchronous driver implementation), let's rename it
so that people don't get bothered by the fact that their driver does not
make use of the "xmit worker" which is a too generic name.
