When we get a channel switch with a very long quiet period, we schedule
a work to disconnect after a while. This work runs in background. In the
meanwhile, we keep getting beacons and sending FW modify command for each.
This has a potential race, where we modify the CSA after we aborted it.

Protect the flow by setting csa_failed to true in case we abort, and check
it before sending the modify command.

This required a modification to the way we treat csa_failed in
1. The variable isn't being reset anymore, so we can still look at it in
iwl_mvm_channel_switch_rx_beacon. This is fine, since we reset it when
starting a new CSA.
2. There is no more early return in case of csa_failed. This is fine,
since before this patch csa_failed was set only for GO, and for GO the
function is only resetting the power settings, which we want to restore
even in case of failure.
