Bug Description

Upgrade the Redpine WLAN/BT RS9113 driver in Ubuntu Xenial kernel to ver. 1.2.RC4.
Release version: 1.2.RC4

This is the latest version of the driver provided by Redpine. For now, this driver is enabled only on x86, x86_64 architectures. The impact is restricted to
{ SDIO_DEVICE(0x041B, 0x9330) } for SDIO based WiFi-BT modules and on USB bus, this driver binds only to RS9113, lets upstream kernel driver handle other RSI chipsets.

Fixes since previous release(see lp:#1665211)
