ath5k: fix error handling in ath5k_beacon_send
This cleans up error handling for the beacon in case of dma mapping failure. We need to free the skb when dma mapping fails instead of nulling and leaking the pointer, and we should bail out to avoid giving the hardware the bad descriptor. Finally, we need to perform the null check after trying to update the beacon, or else beacons will never be sent after a single mapping failure.
