Subject: [PATCH net-next RFC v5 00/15] Add devlink reload action and limit level options

Introduce new options on devlink reload API to enable the user to select
the reload action required and contrains limits on these actions that he
may want to ensure. Complete support for reload actions in mlx5.
The following reload actions are supported:
  driver_reinit: driver entities re-initialization, applying devlink-param
                 and devlink-resource values.
  fw_activate: firmware activate.

The uAPI is backward compatible, if the reload action option is omitted
from the reload command, the driver reinit action will be used.
Note that when required to do firmware activation some drivers may need
to reload the driver. On the other hand some drivers may need to reset
the firmware to reinitialize the driver entities. Therefore, the devlink
reload command returns the actions which were actually performed.

By default reload actions are not limited and driver implementation may
include reset or downtime as needed to perform the actions.
However, if limit_level is selected, the driver should perform only if
it can do it while keeping the limit level constrains.
Reload action limit level added:
  no_reset: No reset allowed, no down time allowed, no link flap and no
            configuration is lost.

Each driver which supports devlink reload command should expose the
reload actions and limit levels supported.

Add reload action stats to hold the history per reload action per limit
level. For example, the number of times fw_activate has been done on
this device since the driver module was added or if the firmware
activation was done with or without reset.

Patch 1-2 add the new API reload action and reload action limit level
          option to devlink reload.
Patch 3 adds reload actions stats.
Patch 4 exposes the reload actions stats on devlink dev get.
Patches 5-10 add support on mlx5 for devlink reload action fw_activate
            and handle the firmware reset events.
Patches 11-12 add devlink enable remote dev reset parameter and use it
             in mlx5.
Patches 13-14 mlx5 add devlink reload action limit level no_reset
              support for fw_activate reload action.
Patch 15 adds documentation file devlink-reload.rst
