sxgbe_sw_reset() is never called in atomic context. sxgbe_sw_reset() is only called by sxgbe_drv_probe(), which is only called by sxgbe_platform_probe(). sxgbe_platform_probe() is set as ".probe" in struct platform_driver. This function is not called in atomic context.
Despite never getting called from atomic context, sxgbe_sw_reset() calls mdelay() to busily wait. This is not necessary and can be replaced with usleep_range() to avoid busy waiting. This is found by a static analysis tool named DCNS written by myself. And I also manually check it.
