Subject[PATCH net-next RFC v5 14/15] net/mlx5: Add support for devlink reload action limit level no reset
Date
Add support for devlink reload action fw_activate with limit level
no_reset which does firmware live patching, updating the firmware image
without reset, no downtime and no configuration lose. The driver checks
if the firmware is capable of handling the pending firmware changes as a
live patch. If it is then it triggers firmware live patching flow.

v3 -> v4:
- Have action fw_activate with limit level no_reset instead of action
fw_activate_no_reset
v2 -> v3:
- Replace fw_live_patch action by fw_activate_no_reset
v1 -> v2:
- Have fw_live_patch action instead of level
