Subject: [PATCH 0/3] Redundant steps removal and bug fix of ntb_hw_switchtec

Hi, Everyone,

This patch series remove redundant steps and fix one bug of the 
ntb_hw_switchtec module.

When a re-initialization is caused by a link event, the driver will
re-setup the shared memory windows. But at that time, the shared memory
is still valid, and it's unnecessary to free, reallocate and then
initialize it again. Remove these redundant steps.

In case of NTB crosslink topology, the setting of shared memory window
in the virtual partition doesn't reset on peer's reboot. So skip the
re-setup of shared memory window for that case.

Switchtec does not support setting multiple MWs simultaneously. However,
there's a race condition when a re-initialization is caused by a link 
event, the driver will re-setup the shared memory window asynchronously
and this races with the client setting up its memory windows on the 
link up event. Fix this by ensure do the entire initialization in a work
queue and signal the client once it's done. 



Changed since v1:
  - It's a second resend of v1
