I have noticed this and applied this local change to avoid below call trace and reported it to Leon few days back in different discussion.

But I fail to justify that this was/is the right fix. To me it seems to hide another bug.
Can you please explain the flow why mlx5_lag_remove() will be called twice with i = 2 because of which null check is needed to avoid unregister_notifier second time?
