Subject: [PATCH net] iavf: Fix deadlock in initialization

Fix deadlock that occurs when iavf interface is a part of failover
configuration.

1. Mutex crit_lock is taken at the beginning of iavf_watchdog_task()
2. Function iavf_init_config_adapter() is called when adapter
   state is __IAVF_INIT_CONFIG_ADAPTER
3. iavf_init_config_adapter() calls register_netdevice() that emits
   NETDEV_REGISTER event
4. Notifier function failover_event() then calls
   net_failover_slave_register() that calls dev_open()
5. dev_open() calls iavf_open() that tries to take crit_lock in
   end-less loop

To fix the situation we should check the current adapter state after
first unsuccessful mutex_trylock() and return with -EBUSY if it is
__IAVF_INIT_CONFIG_ADAPTER.
