Currently in case of target hardware restart ,we just reconfig and
re-enable the security keys and enable the network queues to start
data traffic back from where it was interrupted.

Many ath10k wifi chipsets have sequence numbers for the data
packets assigned by firmware and the mac sequence number will
restart from zero after target hardware restart leading to mismatch
in the sequence number expected by the remote peer vs the sequence
number of the frame sent by the target firmware.

This mismatch in sequence number will cause out-of-order packets
on the remote peer and all the frames sent by the device are dropped
until we reach the sequence number which was sent before we restarted
the target hardware

In order to fix this, we trigger a disconnect in case of hardware
restart. After this there will be a fresh connection and thereby
avoiding the dropping of frames by remote peer.

The right fix would be to pull the entire data path into the host
which is not feasible or would need lots of complex/inefficient
datapath changes.

Changes from v3:
- Fixed commit text errors
- Remove excess space in "hardware  restart"
- Removed blank line between the function description and the arguments

Currently in case of target hardware restart, we just reconfig and
re-enable the security keys and enable the network queues to start
data traffic back from where it was interrupted.

Many ath10k wifi chipsets have sequence numbers for the data
packets assigned by firmware and the mac sequence number will
restart from zero after target hardware restart leading to mismatch
in the sequence number expected by the remote peer vs the sequence
number of the frame sent by the target firmware.

This mismatch in sequence number will cause out-of-order packets
on the remote peer and all the frames sent by the device are dropped
until we reach the sequence number which was sent before we restarted
the target hardware

In order to fix this, we trigger a sta disconnect, in case of target
hw restart. After this there will be a fresh connection and thereby
avoiding the dropping of frames by remote peer.

The right fix would be to pull the entire data path into the host
which is not feasible or would need lots of complex changes and
will still be inefficient.

Tested on ath10k using WCN3990, QCA6174

Currently after the hardware restart triggered from the driver,
the station interface connection remains intact, since a disconnect
trigger is not sent to userspace. This can lead to a problem in
targets where the wifi mac sequence is added by the firmware.

After the target restart, its wifi mac sequence number gets
reset to zero. Hence AP to which our device is connected will receive
frames with a  wifi mac sequence number jump to the past, thereby
resulting in the AP dropping all these frames, until the frame
arrives with a wifi mac sequence number which AP was expecting.

To avoid such frame drops, its better to trigger a station disconnect
upon target hardware restart which can be done with API
ieee80211_reconfig_disconnect exposed to mac80211.

The other targets are not affected by this change, since the hardware
params flag is not set.
