3.12-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.


commit 344bacca8cd811809fc33a249f2738ab757d327f upstream.

This fix solves a race between light flush and on the fly joins.
Light flush doesn't set the device to down and unset IPOIB_OPER_UP
flag, this means that if while flushing we have a MC join in progress
and the QP was attached to BC MGID we can have a mismatches when
re-attaching a QP to the BC MGID.

The light flush would set the broadcast group to NULL causing an on
the fly join to rejoin and reattach to the BC MCG as well as adding
the BC MGID to the multicast list. The flush process would later on
remove the BC MGID and detach it from the QP. On the next flush
the BC MGID is present in the multicast list but not found when trying
to detach it because of the previous double attach and single detach.
