ehea: Fix kernel deadlock in DLPAR-mem processing
Port reset operations and memory add/remove operations need to be serialized to avoid a kernel deadlock. The deadlock is caused by calling the napi_disable() function twice. Therefore we have to employ the dlpar_mem_lock in the ehea_reset_port function as well Signed-off-by: Jan-Bernd Themann <themann@de.ibm.com> Signed-off-by: David S. Miller <davem@davemloft.net>
