[TG3]: Fix irq_sync race condition.
Gagan Arneja <email@example.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- of-sync. 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.
