[PATCH 4.9 078/171] net/mlx5: Fix health work queue spin lock to IRQ safe




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

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

[ Upstream commit 6377ed0bbae6fa28853e1679d068a9106c8a8908 ]

spin_lock/unlock of health->wq_lock should be IRQ safe.
It was changed to spin_lock_irqsave since adding commit 0179720d6be2
("net/mlx5: Introduce trigger_health_work function") which uses
spin_lock from asynchronous event (IRQ) context.
Thus, all spin_lock/unlock of health->wq_lock should have been moved
to IRQ safe mode.
However, one occurrence on new code using this lock missed that
change, resulting in possible deadlock:
  kernel: Possible unsafe locking scenario:
  kernel:       CPU0
  kernel:       ----
  kernel:  lock(&(&health->wq_lock)->rlock);
  kernel:  <Interrupt>
  kernel:    lock(&(&health->wq_lock)->rlock);
  kernel: #012 *** DEADLOCK ***

Fixes: 2a0165a034ac ("net/mlx5: Cancel delayed recovery work when unloading the driver")
