Subject: [PATCH 5.4 77/83] qed: Fix race condition between scheduling and destroying the slowpath workqueue

From: Yuval Basson <ybason@...vell.com>

commit 3b85720d3fd72e6ef4de252cd2f67548eb645eb4 upstream.

Calling queue_delayed_work concurrently with
destroy_workqueue might race to an unexpected outcome -
scheduled task after wq is destroyed or other resources
(like ptt_pool) are freed (yields NULL pointer dereference).
cancel_delayed_work prevents the race by cancelling
the timer triggered for scheduling a new task.

Fixes: 59ccf86fe ("qed: Add driver infrastucture for handling mfw requests")
