Subject: [115/272] RDMA/cxgb4: Dont re-init wait object in init/fini paths

2.6.37-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let us know.

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

From: Steve Wise <swise@...ngridcomputing.com>

commit db8b10167126d72829653690f57b9c7ca53c4d54 upstream.

Re-initializing the wait object in rdma_init()/rdma_fini() causes a
timing window which can lead to a deadlock during close.  Once this
deadlock hits, all RDMA activity over the T4 device will be stuck.

There's no need to re-init the wait object, so remove it.
