Subject[RFC PATCH] Revert "mwifiex: fix system hang problem after resume"
This reverts commit 437322ea2a36d112e20aa7282c869bf924b3a836.

This above-mentioned "fix" does not actually do anything to prevent a
race condition. It simply papers over it so that the issue doesn't

If this is a real problem, it should be explained better than the above
commit does, and an alternative, non-racy solution should be found.

For further reason to revert this: there's ot reason we can't try
resetting the card when it's *actually* stuck in host-sleep mode. So
instead, this is unnecessarily creating scenarios where we can't recover

Amit, please take a look. AIUI, your "fix" is wrong, and quite racy. If you
still think it's needed, can you please propose an alternative? Or at least
explain more why this is needed? Thanks.
