Subject: [net-next v2 05/15] e1000: Do not perform reset in reset_task if we are already down

From: Alexander Duyck <>

We are seeing a deadlock in e1000 down when NAPI is being disabled. Looking
over the kernel function trace of the system it appears that the interface
is being closed and then a reset is hitting which deadlocks the interface
as the NAPI interface is already disabled.

To prevent this from happening I am disabling the reset task when
__E1000_DOWN is already set. In addition code has been added so that we set
the __E1000_DOWN while holding the __E1000_RESET flag in e1000_close in
order to guarantee that the reset task will not run after we have started
the close call.
