syzbot is reporting lockdep warning at ath9k_wmi_event_tasklet() followed
by kernel panic at get_htc_epid_queue() from ath9k_htc_tx_get_packet() from
ath9k_htc_txstatus() [1], for ath9k_wmi_event_tasklet(WMI_TXSTATUS_EVENTID)
depends on spin_lock_init() from ath9k_init_priv() being already completed.

Since ath9k_wmi_event_tasklet() is set by ath9k_init_wmi() from
ath9k_htc_probe_device(), it is possible that ath9k_wmi_event_tasklet() is
called via tasklet interrupt before spin_lock_init() from ath9k_init_priv()
 from ath9k_init_device() from ath9k_htc_probe_device() is called.

Let's hold ath9k_wmi_event_tasklet(WMI_TXSTATUS_EVENTID) no-op until
ath9k_tx_init() completes.
