Subject[PATCH 4.4 19/80] qed: Fix possible race for the link state value.
Date
4.4-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.

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

From: Sudarsana Reddy Kalluru <sudarsana.kalluru@cavium.com>

[ Upstream commit 58874c7b246109d8efb2b0099d1aa296d6bfc3fa ]

There's a possible race where driver can read link status in mid-transition
and see that virtual-link is up yet speed is 0. Since in this
mid-transition we're guaranteed to see a mailbox from MFW soon, we can
afford to treat this as link down.

Fixes: cc875c2e ("qed: Add link support")
