4.9-stable review patch. If anyone has any objections, please let me know.
------------------ From: Neil Horman <nhor...@tuxdriver.com> [ Upstream commit 1c4d5f51a812a82de97beee24f48ed05c65ebda5 ] There are several paths in vmxnet3, where settings changes cause the adapter to be brought down and back up (vmxnet3_set_ringparam among them). Should part of the reset operation fail, these paths call vmxnet3_force_close, which enables all napi instances prior to calling dev_close (with the expectation that vmxnet3_close will then properly disable them again). However, vmxnet3_force_close neglects to clear VMXNET3_STATE_BIT_QUIESCED prior to calling dev_close. As a result vmxnet3_quiesce_dev (called from vmxnet3_close), returns early, and leaves all the napi instances in a enabled state while the device itself is closed. If a device in this state is activated again, napi_enable will be called on already enabled napi_instances, leading to a BUG halt. The fix is to simply enausre that the QUIESCED bit is cleared in vmxnet3_force_close to allow quesence to be completed properly on close.
