Ivan, Thanks for spotting this.
Your fix is correct but it'll be nice if the for-loop for napi_disable
is not even entered when FLAGS_NAPI_ENABLED is not set, as in:

diff --git a/drivers/net/ethernet/emulex/benet/be_main.c b/drivers/net/ethernet/emulex/benet/be_main.c
index 603b662..40d2adb 100644
--- a/drivers/net/ethernet/emulex/benet/be_main.c
+++ b/drivers/net/ethernet/emulex/benet/be_main.c
@@ -2658,8 +2658,8 @@ static int be_close(struct net_device *netdev)
 
 	be_roce_dev_close(adapter);
 
-	for_all_evt_queues(adapter, eqo, i) {
-		if (adapter->flags & BE_FLAGS_NAPI_ENABLED) {
+	if (adapter->flags & BE_FLAGS_NAPI_ENABLED) {
+		for_all_evt_queues(adapter, eqo, i) {
 			napi_disable(&eqo->napi);
 			be_disable_busy_poll(eqo);
 		}

Could you also add the following line to your patch as it fixes a
regression caused by an older be2net commit:
Fixes: 6384a4d0dcf9 ("be2net: add support for ndo_busy_poll")
