Subject[PATCH 4.19 011/187] net/mlx5: Avoid panic when setting vport mac, getting vport config
4.19-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.


[ Upstream commit 6e77c413e8e73d0f36b5358b601389d75ec4451c ]

If we try to set VFs mac address on a VF (not PF) net device,
the kernel will be crash. The commands are show as below:

$ echo 2 > /sys/class/net/$MLX_PF0/device/sriov_numvfs
$ ip link set $MLX_VF0 vf 0 mac 00:11:22:33:44:00
