Subject: [PATCH 1/1] be2net: Detach interface for avoiding a system crash

This crash is triggered by a user-after-free since lake of
the synchronization of a race condition between 
be_update_queues() modifying multi-purpose channels of
network device and be_tx_timeout().

BUG: unable to handle kernel NULL pointer dereference at (null)
Call Trace:
be_tx_timeout+0xa5/0x360 [be2net]
dev_watchdog+0x1d8/0x210
call_timer_fn+0x32/0x140

To fix it, detach the interface before modifying
multi-purpose channels of network device.
