mac80211: check uapsd state for dynamic power save

To make U-APSD client mode effective, we must not wake up from dynamic power
save when transmitting frames. So if dynamic power save is enabled, it needs
check the queue the transmitted packet is in and decide if we need to wake
up or not.

In a perfect world, where all packets would have correct QoS tags, U-APSD
enabled queues should not trigger wakeup from power save. But in the real
world, where very few packets have correct QoS tags, this won't work. For
example, if only voip class has U-APSD enabled and we send a packet in voip
class, but the packets we receive are in best effort class, we would receive
the packets with the legacy power save method. And that would increase
latencies too much from a voip application point of view.

The workaround is to enable U-APSD for all qeueus and still use dynamic ps
wakeup for all other queues except voip. That way we can still save power
with a voip application and not sacrifice latency. Normal traffic (in
background, best effort or video class) would still trigger wakeup from
dynamic power save.

By making use of the CLEAR_SEL feature of the mwl8k host interface

while the transmit reclaim tasklet is running (NAPI style) without

more register reads/writes than we do now.

When CLEAR_SEL is enabled on the TX_DONE interrupt source, reading
the interrupt status register will clear the TX_DONE status bit if
it was set, allowing it to be set again if a new TX_DONE event arrives

then not trigger another PCI interrupt until a zero is written to the

I.e., if we write a zero to the TX_DONE interrupt source bit in the

done, a PCI interrupt will be triggered if a new TX_DONE event arrived
