Subject: [PATCH] libertas: fix crash for SD8688

commit 466026989f112e0546ca39ab00a759af82dbe83a upstream.

For SD8688, FUNC_INIT command is queued before fw_ready flag is
set. This causes the following crash as lbs_thread blocks any
command if fw_ready is not set.

Fix it by setting fw_ready flag prior to queuing FUNC_INIT command.
