Subject: [PATCH wpan-next v2 00/11] ieee802154: Synchronous Tx support


New series bringing support for that famous synchronous Tx API for MLME

MLME commands will be used for during scan operations.

We need to be able to be sure that all transfers finished and that no
transfer will be queued for a short moment.


Changes in v2:
* Updated the main tx function error path.
* Added a missing atomic_dec_at_test() call on the hold counter.
* Always called (upon a certain condition) the queue wakeup helper from
  the release queue helper (and similarly in the hold helper) and
  squashed two existing patches in it to simplify the series.
* Introduced a mutex to serialize accesses to the increment/decrement of
  the hold counter and the wake up call.
* Added a warning in case an MLME Tx gets triggered while the device was
* Used the rtnl to ensure the device cannot be stopped while an MLME
  transmission is ongoing.

Changes in v1 since this series got extracted from a bigger change:
* Introduced a new atomic variable to know when the queue is actually
  stopped. So far we only had an atomic to know when the queue was held
  (indicates a transitioning state towards a stopped queue only) and
  another atomic indicating if a transfer was still ongoing at this
  point (used by the wait logic as a condition to wake up).
