It should be:
                         ieee80211_sta_update_pending_airtime(local, tx.sta, ac,

info->tx_time_est << 2, false);

The airtime rounded to 4us (info->tx_time_est << 2), instead of the
original airtime should be used when registering the pending airtime,
to keep it consistent with airtime subtracted when the skb is freed.
