This is confusing and open to interpretation. Does this mean that the
driver supports:
1) REINIT && FW_ACTIVATE
2) REINIT || FW_ACTIVATE
?

Because mlxsw supports only 1. I guess that mlx5 supports both. This
needs to be distinguished.

I think you need an array of combinations. Or perhaps rather to extend
the enum with combinations. You kind of have it already with
DEVLINK_RELOAD_ACTION_FW_ACTIVATE_NO_RESET

Maybe we can have something like:
DEVLINK_RELOAD_ACTION_DRIVER_REINIT
DEVLINK_RELOAD_ACTION_DRIVER_REINIT_FW_ACTIVATE_RESET
DEVLINK_RELOAD_ACTION_FW_ACTIVATE_RESET
DEVLINK_RELOAD_ACTION_FW_ACTIVATE (this is the original FW_ACTIVATE_NO_RESET)

Each has very clear meaning.

Also, then the "actions_done" would be a simple enum, directly returned
to the user. No bitfield needed.
