Subject: RE: [PATCH 04/11] hv_netvsc: Disable NAPI before closing the VMBus
 channel

From: Andrea Parri (Microsoft) <parri.andrea@...il.com> Sent: Sunday, April 5, 2020 5:15 PM
> 
> vmbus_chan_sched() might call the netvsc driver callback function that
> ends up scheduling NAPI work.  This "work" can access the channel ring
> buffer, so we must ensure that any such work is completed and that the
> ring buffer is no longer being accessed before freeing the ring buffer
> data structure in the channel closure path.  To this end, disable NAPI
> before calling vmbus_close() in netvsc_device_remove().
