Subject[PATCH 4.14 108/146] bnxt_en: Fix sources of spurious netpoll warnings
4.14-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.


From: Calvin Owens <>

[ Upstream commit 2edbdb3159d6f6bd3a9b6e7f789f2b879699a519 ]

After applying 2270bc5da3497945 ("bnxt_en: Fix netpoll handling") and
903649e718f80da2 ("bnxt_en: Improve -ENOMEM logic in NAPI poll loop."),
we still see the following WARN fire:

------------[ cut here ]------------

This happens because we increment rx_pkts on -ENOMEM and -EIO, resulting
in rx_pkts > 0. Fix this by only bumping rx_pkts if we were actually
given a non-zero budget.
