Subject: Re: [TG3 2/3]: Exit irq handler during chip reset.

> [TG3]: Exit irq handler during chip reset.
> On most tg3 chips, the memory enable bit in the PCI command register
> gets cleared during chip reset and must be restored before accessing
> PCI registers using memory cycles.  The chip does not generate
> interrupt during chip reset, but the irq handler can still be called
> because of irq sharing or irqpoll.  Reading a register in the irq
> handler can cause a master abort in this scenario and may result in a
> crash on some architectures.
> Use the TG3_FLAG_CHIP_RESETTING flag to tell the irq handler to exit
> without touching any registers.  The checking of the flag is in the
> "slow" path of the irq handler and will not affect normal performance.
> The msi handler is not shared and therefore does not require checking

Applied, except I fixed up some weird tabbing on this line:

There are two tabs, some space characters, then a final tab,
and it doesn't even make the argument match up to the openning
parenthesis on the previous line :-)
