Niklas,

Sorry for the late response. ath10k_mac_tx_push_pending is already
called
at the end of NAPI handler. Isn't that enough to process pending frames?

Earlier we observed performance issues in calling push_pending from each
tx completion. IMHO this change may introduce the same problem again.
