Subject[PATCH] PCI/switchtec: Fix init_completion race condition with poll_wait()
The call to init_completion() in mrpc_queue_cmd() can theoretically
race with the call to poll_wait() in switchtec_dev_poll().

poll() write()
switchtec_dev_poll() switchtec_dev_write()
poll_wait(&s->comp.wait); mrpc_queue_cmd()
init_completion(&s->comp)
init_waitqueue_head(&s->comp.wait)

To my knowledge, no one has hit this bug, but we should fix it for
correctness.

Fix this by using reinit_completion() instead of init_completion() in
mrpc_queue_cmd().
