    [TG3]: Fix irq_sync race condition. · 46966545
    Michael Chan authored
    Gagan Arneja <gaagaan@gmail.com> pointed out that tg3_reset_task()
    could potentially race with another thread calling tg3_full_lock()
    such as the ethtool_set_xxx() functions.  This may trigger the
    BUG_ON() in tg3_irq_quiesce() or cause the irq_sync flag to be out-
    I think the easiest way to fix this is to get the tp->lock first
    before setting the irq_sync flag.  This is safe to do because the
    tp->lock is never grabbed by the irq handler.  This change will
    guarantee that the irq_sync flag updates will be serialized.  We also
    have to change one spot to call tg3_netif_start() (which clears the
    irq_sync flag) before releasing the tp->lock.
