Subject[PATCH 4.13 15/35] net/mlx5: Cancel health poll before sending panic teardown command
4.13-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.


From: Huy Nguyen <>

[ Upstream commit d2aa060d40fa060e963f9a356d43481e43ba3dac ]

After the panic teardown firmware command, health_care detects the error
in PCI bus and calls the mlx5_pci_err_detected. This health_care flow is
no longer needed because the panic teardown firmware command will bring
down the PCI bus communication with the HCA.

The solution is to cancel the health care timer and its pending
workqueue request before sending panic teardown firmware command.

Kernel trace:
mlx5_core 0033:01:00.0: Shutdown was called
mlx5_core 0033:01:00.0: health_care:154:(pid 9304): handling bad device here
