    b43: Rewrite DMA Tx status handling sanity checks
    
    This rewrites the error handling policies in the TX status handler.
    It tries to be error-tolerant as in "try hard to not crash the machine".
    It won't recover from errors (that are bugs in the firmware or driver),
    because that's impossible. However, it will return a more or less useful
    error message and bail out. It also tries hard to use rate-limited messages
    to not flood the syslog in case of a failure.
