Subject: [PATCH net-next V1 03/12] net/mlx5: E-Switch, Replace vport spin lock with synchronize_irq()

From: Mohamad Haj Yahia <mohamad@...lanox.com>

Vport spin lock can be replaced with synchronize_irq() in the right
place, this will remove the need of locking inside irq context.
Locking in esw_enable_vport is not required since vport events are yet
to be enabled, and at esw_disable_vport it is sufficient to
synchronize_irq() to guarantee no further vport events handlers will be
scheduled.
