net/mlx4_core: Fix reset flow when in command polling mode
As part of unloading a device, the driver switches from FW command event mode to FW command polling mode. Part of switching over to polling mode is freeing the command context array memory (unfortunately, currently, without NULLing the command context array pointer). The reset flow calls "complete" to complete all outstanding fw commands (if we are in event mode). The check for event vs. polling mode here is to test if the command context array pointer is NULL. If the reset flow is activated after the switch to polling mode, it will attempt (incorrectly) to complete all the commands in the context array -- because the pointer was not NULLed when the driver switched over to polling mode. As a result, we have a use-after-free situation, which results in a kernel crash. For example: BUG: unable to handle kernel NULL pointer dereference at (null) IP: [<ffffffff876c4a8e>] __wake_up_common+0x2e/0x90 PGD 0 Oops: 0000 [#1] SMP Modules linked in: netconsole nfsv3 nfs_acl nfs lockd grace ...
