net/mlx4: Fix irq-unsafe spinlock usage
spin_lock/unlock was used instead of spin_un/lock_irq in a procedure used in process space, on a spinlock which can be grabbed in an interrupt. This caused the stack trace below to be displayed (on kernel 4.17.0-rc1 compiled with Lock Debugging enabled): [ 154.661474] WARNING: SOFTIRQ-safe -> SOFTIRQ-unsafe lock order detected [ 154.668909] 4.17.0-rc1-rdma_rc_mlx+ #3 Tainted: G I [ 154.675856] ----------------------------------------------------- [ 154.682706] modprobe/10159 [HC0[0]:SC0[0]:HE0:SE1] is trying to acquire: [ 154.690254] 00000000f3b0e495 (&(&qp_table->lock)->rlock){+.+.}, at: mlx4_qp_remove+0x20/0x50 [mlx4_core] [ 154.700927] and this task is already holding: [ 154.707461] 0000000094373b5d (&(&cq->lock)->rlock/1){....}, at: destroy_qp_common+0x111/0x560 [mlx4_ib] [ 154.718028] which would create a new lock dependency: [ 154.723705] (&(&cq->lock)->rlock/1){....} -> (&(&qp_table->lock)->rlock){+.+.} [ 154.731922] but this new dependency connects a SOFTIRQ-irq-safe lock: [ 154.740798] (&(&cq->lock)->rlock){..-.} [ 154.740800] ... which became SOFTIRQ-irq-safe at: [ 154.752163] _raw_spin_lock_irqsave+0x3e/0x50 [ 154.757163] mlx4_ib_poll_cq+0x36/0x900 [mlx4_ib] [ 154.762554] ipoib_tx_poll+0x4a/0xf0 [ib_ipoib] ... to a SOFTIRQ-irq-unsafe lock: [ 154.815603] (&(&qp_table->lock)->rlock){+.+.} [ 154.815604] ... which became SOFTIRQ-irq-unsafe at: [ 154.827718] ...
