Lawrence reported that git clone could make system crash on a
Qualcomm ARM soc based device (DragonBoard, 1G memory without
swap) running 64bit Debian.

It's turned out the crash is related with rx skb allocation
failure. git could consume more than 600MB anonymous memory.
And system is in extremely memory shortage case.

But driver didn't handle the rx allocation failure case. This patch
doesn't submit skb to upper layer if rx skb allocation fails.
Instead, it reuse the old skb for rx DMA again. It's more like
drop the packets if system is in memory shortage case.

With this change, git clone is OOMed instead of system crash.

Ping.... I am sure this is a fix according to the test I did.

This can't work because we need to initialize the DMA for the old skb again.
Which is done in following
	switch (ch->ch_type) {
block.

I don't want to introduce "goto". But I really like your choice to create
wcn36xx_restart_dma. I will keep some original patch to avoid "goto" and
adopt the function wcn36xx_restart_dma. Will send the patch out.
