Subject[PATCH 3.18 009/145] mlx4: Invoke softirqs after napi_reschedule
Date
3.18-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.

------------------

From: Benjamin Poirier <bpoirier@suse.com>


[ Upstream commit bd4ce941c8d5b862b2f83364be5dbe8fc8ab48f8 ]

mlx4 may schedule napi from a workqueue. Afterwards, softirqs are not run
in a deterministic time frame and the following message may be logged:
NOHZ: local_softirq_pending 08

The problem is the same as what was described in commit ec13ee80145c
("virtio_net: invoke softirqs after __napi_schedule") and this patch
applies the same fix to mlx4.

Fixes: 07841f9d94c1 ("net/mlx4_en: Schedule napi when RX buffers allocation fails")
