Subject: [PATCH] ath9k: skip rearming rx_poll_timer when quiescing

From: "Luis R. Rodriguez" <[email protected]>

When mac80211 goes to suspend we disarm our timers
but users of mod_timer() must ensure to use
mod_timer_pending() where appropriate to avoid
re-arming them before coming up after suspend. This
is one case that was reported by Parag.

Issue reported:

WARNING: at net/mac80211/util.c:599 ieee80211_can_queue_work.isra.7+0x32/0x40 [mac80211]()

Other timers on 802.11 drivers, mac80211 and cfg80211
should be groomed to verify the same is avoided.
