Subject: [PATCH AUTOSEL for 4.9 41/52] ibmvnic: Fix overflowing
 firmware/hardware TX queue

From: Thomas Falcon <tlfalcon@...ux.vnet.ibm.com>

[ Upstream commit 142c0ac445792c492579cb01f1cfd4e32e6dfcce ]

Use a counter to track the number of outstanding transmissions sent
that have not received completions. If the counter reaches the maximum
number of queue entries, stop transmissions on that queue. As we receive
more completions from firmware, wake the queue once the counter reaches
an acceptable level.

This patch prevents hardware/firmware TX queue from filling up and
and generating errors.  Since incorporating this fix, internal testing
has reported that these firmware errors have stopped.
