[PATCH 4.9 129/171] net: ena: fix NULL dereference due to untimely napi initialization




4.9-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.

------------------

[ Upstream commit 78a55d05def95144ca5fa9a64c49b2a0636a9866 ]

napi poll functions should be initialized before running request_irq(),
to handle a rare condition where there is a pending interrupt, causing
the ISR to fire immediately while the poll function wasn't set yet,
causing a NULL dereference.

Fixes: 1738cd3ed342 ("net: ena: Add a driver for Amazon Elastic Network Adapters (ENA)")
