mlx4: Invoke softirqs after napi_reschedule
[ Upstream commit bd4ce941c8d5b862b2f83364be5dbe8fc8ab48f8 ] mlx4 may schedule napi from a workqueue. Afterwards, softirqs are not run in a deterministic time frame and the following message may be logged: NOHZ: local_softirq_pending 08 The problem is the same as what was described in commit ec13ee80145c ("virtio_net: invoke softirqs after __napi_schedule") and this patch applies the same fix to mlx4. Fixes: 07841f9d94c1 ("net/mlx4_en: Schedule napi when RX buffers allocation fails") Cc: Eric Dumazet <eric.dumazet@gmail.com> Signed-off-by: Benjamin Poirier <bpoirier@suse.com> Acked-by: Eric Dumazet <edumazet@google.com> Reviewed-by: Tariq Toukan <tariqt@mellanox.com> Signed-off-by: David S.
