Subject: [PATCH AUTOSEL 5.8 09/29] hv_netvsc: Cache the current data path to avoid duplicate call and message

From: Dexuan Cui <decui@...rosoft.com>

[ Upstream commit da26658c3d7005aa67a706dceff7b2807b59e123 ]

The previous change "hv_netvsc: Switch the data path at the right time
during hibernation" adds the call of netvsc_vf_changed() upon
NETDEV_CHANGE, so it's necessary to avoid the duplicate call and message
when the VF is brought UP or DOWN.
