Subject: [PATCH v2] ath9k_htc: Add a missing spin_lock_init()
Date: Thu, 29 Jul 2021 00:55:33 +0530	[thread overview]
Message-ID: <> (raw)
In-Reply-To: <>

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. So, add a spin_lock_init() in
