netvsc: don't flush peers notifying work during setting mtu
[ Upstream commit 50dc875f2e6e2e04aed3b3033eb0ac99192d6d02 ] There's a possible deadlock if we flush the peers notifying work during setting mtu: [ 22.991149] ====================================================== [ 22.991173] [ INFO: possible circular locking dependency detected ] [ 22.991198] 3.10.0-54.0.1.el7.x86_64.debug #1 Not tainted [ 22.991219] ------------------------------------------------------- [ 22.991243] ip/974 is trying to acquire lock: [ 22.991261] ((&(&net_device_ctx->dwork)->work)){+.+.+.}, at: [<ffffffff8108af95>] flush_work+0x5/0x2e0 [ 22.991307] but task is already holding lock: [ 22.991330] (rtnl_mutex){+.+.+.}, at: [<ffffffff81539deb>] rtnetlink_rcv+0x1b/0x40 [ 22.991367] which lock already depends on the new lock.

This will lead the flush won't succeed forever. Solve this by not canceling and flushing the work, this is safe because the transmission done by NETDEV_NOTIFY_PEERS was synchronized with the netif_tx_disable() called by netvsc_change_mtu().
