Commit message:

[net80211] begin handling multiple hardware decap'ed A-MSDU in the RX path.

The duplicate detection code currently expects A-MSDU frames to be encaped -
they're decap'ed /after/ duplicate detection.

However for ath10k (and iwm hardware later on) the firmware supports
doing A-MSDU decap in hardware - which shows up as multiple frames with
the same sequence number and IV.

This is the first part of decap handling - if we see a stretch of A-MSDU
frames from the driver with the MORE bit set, then don't treat them
as duplicates.

This isn't 100% complete as crypto sequence number handling and "A-MSDU in
A-MPDU" needs handling, but it's a start.

This should be a glorified no-op for everyone. Please tell me if it isn't.
