net/mlx5: Cancel health poll before sending panic teardown command
After the panic teardown firmware command, health_care detects the error in PCI bus and calls the mlx5_pci_err_detected. This health_care flow is no longer needed because the panic teardown firmware command will bring down the PCI bus communication with the HCA. The solution is to cancel the health care timer and its pending workqueue request before sending panic teardown firmware command.
