ath9k: add workaround for AR9331 USB host controller hang with USB1.1 devices

When wifi radio is reset, some bits in (undocumented) USB registers may
flip. Patch adds setting them after radio reset (channel change, up/down).
With this patch stability of USB1.1 full-speed devices, connected directly
to AR9331 host port (no USB2.0 hub) is improved.

See "ar9331's usb stability issue" OpenWrt forum thread for details:

<https://forum.openwrt.org/viewtopic.php?id=39956>

Based on QCA's Open HAL WAR_USB_DISABLE_PLL_LOCK_DETECT() macro:
