3.11.10.2 -stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.

------------------

From: Emmanuel Grumbach <emmanuel.grumbach@intel.com>

commit f6b129527ca15bae29ffb9417ddaa1c9d99ffc5d upstream.

Since we set IEEE80211_HW_QUEUE_CONTROL, we can let
mac80211 do the queue assignement and don't need to
override its decisions.
While reassiging the same values is harmless of course,
it triggered  a WARNING when iwlwifi and mac80211 came
to different conclusions. This happened when mac80211 set
IEEE80211_TX_CTL_SEND_AFTER_DTIM, but didn't route the
packet to the cab_queue because no stations were asleep.

iwlwifi should not override mac80211's decicions for
offchannel packets and packets to  be sent after DTIM,
but it should override mac80211's decision for AMPDUs
since we have a special queue for them. So for AMPDU,
we still override info->hw_queue by the AMPDU queue.

This avoids:
