[PATCH 4.19 041/148] mt76: fix potential NULL pointer dereference in mt76_stop_tx_queues




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

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

[ Upstream commit 7c250f4612ae97aa04500c0d0cff69bb87046e3a ]

Starting from mac80211 commit adf8ed01e4fd ("mac80211: add an optional
TXQ for other PS-buffered frames") and commit 0eeb2b674f05 ("mac80211:
add an option for station management TXQ") a new per-sta queue has been
introduced for bufferable management frames.
sta->txq[IEEE80211_NUM_TIDS] is initialized just if the driver reports
the following hw flags:
- IEEE80211_HW_STA_MMPDU_TXQ
- IEEE80211_HW_BUFF_MMPDU_TXQ
This can produce a NULL pointer dereference in mt76_stop_tx_queues
since mt76 iterates on all available sta tx queues assuming they are
initialized by mac80211. This issue has been spotted analyzing the code
(it has not triggered any crash yet)
