Subject: [PATCH] mwifiex: check wait_event_interruptible return value

commit 9c969d8ccb1e17bd20742f4ac9f00c1a64487234 upstream.

wait_event_interruptible function returns -ERESTARTSYS if it's
interrupted by a signal. Driver should check the return value
and handle this case properly.

In mwifiex_wait_queue_complete() routine, as we are now checking
wait_event_interruptible return value, the condition check is not
required. Also, we have removed mwifiex_cancel_pending_ioctl()
call to avoid a chance of sending second command to FW by other path
as soon as we clear current command node. FW can not handle two
commands simultaneously.
