When Realtek WiFi 8723de tries to authenticate, the AP may return the
exchanged key is wrong, either by "Reason 2" or "Reason 23".

8723de specific fix to make sure auth TX is sent out and can be received
by AP.

Loop to connect/disconnect as a reproducer.
After applying the fix, it can re-connect just fine over 10000 times.

[Regression Potential]
Low. It's tested by Realtek internally, and they also made sure the
other two supported chip, 8822BE and 8822CE, work correctly.

Ping-Ke Shih (3):
  UBUNTU: SAUCE: rtw88: No retry and report for auth and assoc
  UBUNTU: SAUCE: rtw88: fix rate for a while after being connected
  UBUNTU: SAUCE: rtw88: Move driver IQK to set channel before association for 11N chip
