Subject: [PATCH 5.4 10/17] net/mlx5: Add retry mechanism to the command entry index allocation

From: Eran Ben Elisha <eranbe@...dia.com>

commit 410bd754cd73c4a2ac3856d9a03d7b08f9c906bf upstream.

It is possible that new command entry index allocation will temporarily
fail. The new command holds the semaphore, so it means that a free entry
should be ready soon. Add one second retry mechanism before returning an
error.

Patch "net/mlx5: Avoid possible free of command entry while timeout comp
handler" increase the possibility to bump into this temporarily failure
as it delays the entry index release for non-callback commands.

Fixes: e126ba97dba9 ("mlx5: Add driver for Mellanox Connect-IB adapters")
