That's next. :) I wanted to fix the !@#@! VI queue first.

Am looking over minstrel blues-also.

But while I'm hacking and slashing here, I can't think of any reason
why we'd ever want a non-aggregate queue depth of > 2. And I think the
complete_poll_interval is too long for short packets, but I'm not sure
what happens in terms of the jiffies conversion is.

-#define ATH_TX_COMPLETE_POLL_INT   1000
