    iwlwifi: fix scan races
    
    When an internal scan is started, nothing protects the
    is_internal_short_scan variable which can cause crashes,
    cf. https://bugzilla.kernel.org/show_bug.cgi?id=15667.
    Fix this by making the short scan request use the mutex
    for locking, which requires making the request go to a
    work struct so that it can sleep.
