Subject[PATCH 2/2] ehea: Fix kernel deadlock in DLPAR-mem processing
Date
Port reset operations and memory add/remove operations need to 
be serialized to avoid a kernel deadlock. The deadlock is caused
by calling the napi_disable() function twice.
Therefore we have to employ the dlpar_mem_lock in the ehea_reset_port
function as well
