ath9k-htc:respect usb buffer cacheline alignment in reg in path
In ath9k-htc register in path, ath9k-htc will pass skb->data into usb hcd and usb hcd will do dma mapping and unmapping to the buffer pointed by skb->data, so we should pass a cache-line aligned address. This patch replace __dev_alloc_skb with alloc_skb to make skb->data pointed to a cacheline aligned address simply since ath9k-htc does not skb_push on the skb and pass it to mac80211, also use kfree_skb to free the skb allocated by alloc_skb(we can use kfree_skb safely in hardirq context since skb->destructor is NULL always in the path).
