parentnet/mlx5: Add a locked flag to node removal functions (diff)
net/mlx5: Consolidate update FTE for all removal changes
With commit a18e879d4e45 ("net/mlx5e: Annul encap action ordering requirement") and a use-case of e-switch remote mirroring, the incremental/stepped FTE removal process done by the fs core got us to illegal transient states and FW errors: SET_FLOW_TABLE_ENTRY(0x936) op_mod(0x0) failed, status bad parameter(0x3), syndrome (0x9c2e40) To avoid that and improve FTE removal performance, aggregate the FTE's updates that should be applied. Remove the FTE if it is empty, or apply one FW update command with the aggregated updates.
