Subject: [PATCH AUTOSEL 4.19 14/31] hv_netvsc: Fix unwanted wakeup in netvsc_attach()

From: Haiyang Zhang <haiyangz@...rosoft.com>

[ Upstream commit f6f13c125e05603f68f5bf31f045b95e6d493598 ]

When netvsc_attach() is called by operations like changing MTU, etc.,
an extra wakeup may happen while netvsc_attach() calling
rndis_filter_device_add() which sends rndis messages when queue is
stopped in netvsc_detach(). The completion message will wake up queue 0.

We can reproduce the issue by changing MTU etc., then the wake_queue
counter from "ethtool -S" will increase beyond stop_queue counter:
     stop_queue: 0
     wake_queue: 1
The issue causes queue wake up, and counter increment, no other ill
effects in current code. So we didn't see any network problem for now.

To fix this, initialize tx_disable to true, and set it to false when
the NIC is ready to be attached or registered.

Fixes: 7b2ee50c0cd5 ("hv_netvsc: common detach logic")
