Subject[PATCH 4.9 15/61] bnxt_en: Fix race when modifying pause settings.
Date
From: Vasundhara Volam <vasundhara-v.volam@broadcom.com>

[ Upstream commit 163e9ef63641a02de4c95cd921577265c52e1ce2 ]

The driver was modified to not rely on rtnl lock to protect link
settings about 2 years ago. The pause setting was missed when
making that change. Fix it by acquiring link_lock mutex before
calling bnxt_hwrm_set_pause().

Fixes: e2dc9b6e38fa ("bnxt_en: Don't use rtnl lock to protect link change logic in workqueue.")
