Thanks for your review. I agree with what you said. Theoretically, core can't call ndo_start_xmit
to send packet after netif_tx_disable called by hinic_close because __QUEUE_STATE_DRV_XOFF bit is set
and this bit is protected by __netif_tx_lock but it does call hinic_xmit_frame after netif_tx_disable
in my debug message. I'll try to figure out why and fix it. It seems like that the patch from
https://marc.info/?l=linux-netdev&m=159903844423389&w=2 can't fix this problem.
