Subject: [PATCH V1 net-next 2/5] net/mlx4_core: Protect port type setting by mutex

From: Amir Vadai <amirv@...lanox.com>

We need to protect set_port_type() for concurrency, as the sysfs code could
call it from mutliple contexts in parallel.

The port_mutex is not enough because we need to protect from concurrent
modification of 'info' and stopping of the port sensing work.
