Subject: [PATCH net v2] net/smc: Fix hung_task when removing SMC-R devices

A hung_task is observed when removing SMC-R devices. Suppose that
a link group has two active links(lnk_A, lnk_B) associated with two
different SMC-R devices(dev_A, dev_B). When dev_A is removed, the
link group will be removed from smc_lgr_list and added into
lgr_linkdown_list. lnk_A will be cleared and smcibdev(A)->lnk_cnt
will reach to zero. However, when dev_B is removed then, the link
group can't be found in smc_lgr_list and lnk_B won't be cleared,
making smcibdev->lnk_cnt never reaches zero, which causes a hung_task.

This patch fixes this issue by restoring the implementation of
smc_smcr_terminate_all() to what it was before commit 349d43127dac
("net/smc: fix kernel panic caused by race of smc_sock"). The original
implementation also satisfies the intention that make sure QP destroy
earlier than CQ destroy because we will always wait for smcibdev->lnk_cnt
reaches zero, which guarantees QP has been destroyed.

Fixes: 349d43127dac ("net/smc: fix kernel panic caused by race of smc_sock")
