Subject: [PATCH v2 07/17] solos-pci: Wait for pending TX to complete when
 releasing vcc

We should no longer be calling the old pop routine for the vcc, after
vcc_release() has completed. Make sure we wait for any pending TX skbs
to complete, by waiting for our own PKT_PCLOSE control skb to be sent.

Signed-off-by: David Woodhouse <>
v2: Don't put a struct completion into skb->cb[]. It doesn't fit, so
instead use the existing card->param_wq, hold a refcount on the skb, and
wait for the fpga_tx code to free it.

I won't repost the rest of the series; they're materially unchanged
apart from a tiny amount of massaging to make them apply with this
change, so it would just be noise.
