Subject: [PATCH wpan-next v2 00/14] ieee802154: Synchronous Tx API

The idea here is to provide a fully synchronous Tx API and also be able
to be sure that a transfer as finished. This will be used later by
another series.

The first patches create an error helper and then use it in order to
have only two "end of transmission" helpers that are always called.

Then, a bit of cleanup regarding the naming and the locations of certain
peaces of code is done.

Finally, we create a hot and a slow path, add the necessary logic to be
able to track ongoing transfers and when the queue must be kept on hold,
until we finally create a helper to stop emitting after the last
transfer, which we then use to create a synchronous MLME API.

Changes in v2:
* Adapted with the changes already merged/refused.
