parentbnxt_en: Fix VF resource checking. (diff)
bnxt_en: Fix possible corrupted NVRAM parameters from firmware response.
In bnxt_find_nvram_item(), it is copying firmware response data after releasing the mutex. This can cause the firmware response data to be corrupted if the next firmware response overwrites the response buffer. The rare problem shows up when running ethtool -i repeatedly. Fix it by calling the new variant _hwrm_send_message_silent() that requires the caller to take the mutex and to release it after the response data has been copied.
