when turning off a connection, lockdep complains with the
following warning (a modprobe has been done but the same
happens with a disconnection from NetworkManager,
it's enough to trigger a cfg80211_disconnect call):

This happens because when we enqueue a frame for
transmission we do it under xmit_priv lock, then calling
rtw_get_stainfo (needed for enqueuing) takes sta_hash_lock
and this leads to the following lock dependency:

xmit_priv->lock -> sta_hash_lock

Turning off a connection will bring to call
rtw_free_assoc_resources which will set up
the inverse dependency:

sta_hash_lock -> xmit_priv_lock

This could lead to a deadlock as lockdep complains.

Fix it by removing the xmit_priv->lock around
rtw_xmitframe_enqueue call inside rtl8723bs_hal_xmit
and put it in a smaller critical section inside
rtw_xmit_classifier, the only place where
xmit_priv data are actually accessed.

Replace spin_{lock,unlock}_bh(pxmitpriv->lock)
in other tx paths leading to rtw_xmitframe_enqueue
call with spin_{lock,unlock}_bh(psta->sleep_q.lock)
- it's not clear why accessing a sleep_q was protected
by a spinlock on xmitpriv->lock.

This way is avoided the same faulty lock nesting
order.
