Syzkaller reported a lockdep warning on non-initialized spinlock:

INFO: trying to register non-static key.
The code is fine but needs lockdep annotation, or maybe
you didn't initialize this object before use?
turning off the locking correctness validator.

We missed a spin_lock_init() in ath9k_wmi_event_tasklet() when the wmi
event is WMI_TXSTATUS_EVENTID. Placing this init here instead of
ath9k_init_wmi() is fine mainly because we need this spinlock when the
event is WMI_TXSTATUS_EVENTID and hence it should be initialized when it
is needed.
