Subject[PATCH 4.14 106/496] RDMA/bnxt_re: Fix system crash during load/unload
Date
4.14-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.

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

From: Selvin Xavier <selvin.xavier@broadcom.com>

[ Upstream commit dcdaba08062b4726500b9456f8664bfda896c664 ]

During driver unload, the driver proceeds with cleanup
without waiting for the scheduled events. So the device
pointers get freed up and driver crashes when the events
are scheduled later.

Flush the bnxt_re_task work queue before starting
device removal.
