Subject[PATCH 5.4 285/320] Revert "net/mlx5: Add retry mechanism to the command entry index allocation"
Date
From: Moshe Shemesh <moshe@nvidia.com>

commit 4f6626b0e140867fd6d5a2e9d4ceaef97f10f46a upstream.

This reverts commit 410bd754cd73c4a2ac3856d9a03d7b08f9c906bf.

The reverted commit had added a retry mechanism to the command entry
index allocation. The previous patch ensures that there is a free
command entry index once the command work handler holds the command
semaphore. Thus the retry mechanism is not needed.
