Subject[PATCH testing] mrf24j40: Move INIT_COMPLETION to before the packet is sent
This avoids a race condition where the tx_complete interrupt could happen
before the completion is initialized.


David H,

Try this out and see if it changes anything for you. I put a bunch of
schedule_timeout()s in mrf24j40_tx() to basically guarantee that a reception
will happen during mrf24j40_tx(), and it seems to work. It would not work
before with said schedule_timeout() calls.
