Well I'm an idiot. Someone had cherry-picked commit 4529819c4 (that caused
the reset_task bnx2 crash), so it was bad code in bnx2_netif_stop()/start()
that's already been fixed upstream. I'll merge our bnx2 code up to the
firmware commit and start testing again to see if we still see the watchdog
timeouts we've seen in the past.

Thanks for your help.
