New wi-fi driver, qwx(4), enabled in -current

Contributed by rueda on from the qwx my line dept.

Stefan Sperling (stsp@) tooted regarding the addition of qwx(4) to -current:

The next set of #OpenBSD amd64/arm64 snapshots will start shipping the qwx driver for #ath11k QCNFA765 wifi devices.

My part-time effort on this driver started about a year ago, with much help from mpi@, @bluerise, kettenis@, and claudio@

Edit: And I should mention that the OpenBSD Foundation supports this effort. Thanks to everyone who donated!

The QCNFA765 is found in some laptops.

The driver currently supports only 11a/b/g modes.

Thanks to Stefan, his helpers, and The OpenBSD Foundation!
