[PATCH net] mlx4_core: fix race on comm channel

[Date Prev][Date Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next][Date Index][Thread Index]

From: Eugenia Emantayev <eugenia@xxxxxxxxxxxxxx>

Prevent race condition between commands on comm channel.
Happened while unloading the driver when switching from
event to polling mode. VF got completion on the last command
before switching to polling mode, but toggle was not changed.
After the fix - VF will not write the next command before
toggle is updated.
