Subject: [PATCH 1/1] net/mlx5: Call pci_disable_sriov() on remove

as described in Documentation/PCI/pci-iov-howto.rst a driver with SR-IOV
support should call pci_disable_sriov() in the remove handler.
Otherwise removing a PF (e.g. via pci_stop_and_remove_bus_device()) with
attached VFs does not properly shut the VFs down before shutting down
the PF. This leads to the VF drivers handling defunct devices and
accompanying error messages.

In the current code pci_disable_sriov() is already called in
mlx5_sriov_disable() but not in mlx5_sriov_detach() which is called from
the remove handler. Fix this by moving the pci_disable_sriov() call into
mlx5_device_disable_sriov() which is called by both.
