RDMA/mlx5: Fix devlink deadlock on net namespace deletion
When a mlx5 core devlink instance is reloaded in different net namespace, its associated IB device is deleted and recreated. Example sequence is: $ ip netns add foo $ devlink dev reload pci/0000:00:08.0 netns foo $ ip netns del foo mlx5 IB device needs to attach and detach the netdevice to it through the netdev notifier chain during load and unload sequence. A below call graph of the unload flow. cleanup_net() down_read(&pernet_ops_rwsem); <- first sem acquired ops_pre_exit_list() pre_exit() devlink_pernet_pre_exit() devlink_reload() mlx5_devlink_reload_down() mlx5_unload_one() [...] mlx5_ib_remove() mlx5_ib_unbind_slave_port() mlx5_remove_netdev_notifier() unregister_netdevice_notifier() down_write(&pernet_ops_rwsem);<- recurrsive lock Hence, when net namespace is deleted, mlx5 reload results in deadlock. When deadlock occurs, devlink mutex is also held. This not only deadlocks the mlx5 device under reload, but all the processes which attempt to access unrelated devlink devices are deadlocked. Hence, fix this by mlx5 ib driver to register for per net netdev notifier instead of global one, which operats on the net namespace without holding the pernet_ops_rwsem.
