parentnet: phy: avoid clearing PHY interrupts twice in irq handler (diff)
bnxt_en: reinitialize IRQs when MTU is modified
MTU changes may affect the number of IRQs so we must call bnxt_close_nic()/bnxt_open_nic() with the irq_re_init parameter set to true. The reason is that a larger MTU may require aggregation rings not needed with smaller MTU. We may not be able to allocate the required number of aggregation rings and so we reduce the number of channels which will change the number of IRQs. Without this patch, it may crash eventually in pci_disable_msix() when the IRQs are not properly unwound. Fixes: c0c050c58d84 ("bnxt_en: New Broadcom ethernet driver.")
