Subject: [PATCH net] cxgb4: Fix FW flash logic using ethtool

Use t4_fw_upgrade instead of t4_load_fw to write firmware into FLASH, since
t4_load_fw doesn't co-ordinate with the firmware and the adapter can get hosed
enough to require a power cycle of the system.

Based on original work by Casey Leedom <>
