Subject: [PATCH 2/2] net: qed: Disable SRIOV functionality inside kdump kernel

Since we have kdump kernel(s) running under severe memory constraint
it makes sense to disable the qed SRIOV functionality when running the
kdump kernel as kdump configurations on several distributions don't
support SRIOV targets for saving the vmcore (see [1] for example).

Currently the qed SRIOV functionality ends up consuming memory in
the kdump kernel, when we don't really use the same.

An example log seen in the kdump kernel with the SRIOV functionality
enabled can be seen below (obtained via memstrack tool, see [2]):
 dracut-pre-pivot[676]: ======== Report format module_summary: ========
 dracut-pre-pivot[676]: Module qed using 149.6MB (2394 pages), peak allocation 149.6MB (2394 pages)

This patch disables the SRIOV functionality inside kdump kernel and with
the same applied the memory consumption goes down:
 dracut-pre-pivot[671]: ======== Report format module_summary: ========
 dracut-pre-pivot[671]: Module qed using 124.6MB (1993 pages), peak allocation 124.7MB (1995 pages)
