Hi David,
Can you please consider this patch for v5.7 and the stable tree v5.6.y?

I understand it's already v5.7-rc7 now, but IHMO applying this patch
to v5.7 and v5.6.y can bring an immediate benefit and can not break
anything existing: currently a Linux system with the mlx5 NIC always 
crashes upon hibernation. With this patch, hibernation works fine with
the NIC in my tests. 

Some users who are trying to hiberante their VMs (which run on Hyper-V
and Azure) have reported the crash to me for several months, so IMHO
it would be really great if the patch can land in v5.7 and v5.6.y rather 
than land in v5.8 in ~2 months and is backported to v5.6.y and v5.7.y.

Thanks,
-- Dexuan
