Subject: [PATCH net 2/2] cxgb4: Fix race between loopback and normal Tx path

Even after Tx queues are marked stopped, there exists a
small window where the current packet in the normal Tx
path is still being sent out and loopback selftest ends
up corrupting the same Tx ring. So, ensure selftest takes
the Tx lock to synchronize access the Tx ring.

Fixes: 7235ffae3d2c ("cxgb4: add loopback ethtool self-test")
