Subject[PATCH AUTOSEL for 4.14 044/100] bnxt_en: Need to unconditionally shut down RoCE in bnxt_shutdown
From: Ray Jui <>

[ Upstream commit a7f3f939dd7d8398acebecd1ceb2e9e7ffbe91d2 ]

The current 'bnxt_shutdown' implementation only invokes
'bnxt_ulp_shutdown' to shut down RoCE in the case when the system is in
the path of power off (SYSTEM_POWER_OFF). While this may work in most
cases, it does not work in the smart NIC case, when Linux 'reboot'
command is initiated from the Linux that runs on the ARM cores of the
NIC card. In this particular case, Linux 'reboot' results in a system
'L3' level reset where the entire ARM and associated subsystems are
being reset, but at the same time, Nitro core is being kept in sane state
(to allow external PCIe connected servers to continue to work). Without
properly shutting down RoCE and freeing all associated resources, it
results in the ARM core to hang immediately after the 'reboot'

By always invoking 'bnxt_ulp_shutdown' in 'bnxt_shutdown', it fixes the
above issue

Fixes: 0efd2fc65c92 ("bnxt_en: Add a callback to inform RDMA driver during PCI shutdown.")
