Subject: [net-next 4/4] ixgbevf: scheduling while atomic in reset hw path

From: John Fastabend <>

In ixgbevf_reset_hw_vf() msleep is called while holding rtnl_lock
and mbx_lock resulting in a schedule while atomic bug with trace

This patch uses mdelay instead.

BUG: scheduling while atomic: ip/6539/0x00000002
2 locks held by ip/6539:
