Subject: [net-next 01/14] net/mlx5: print change on SW reset semaphore returns busy

From: Moshe Shemesh <>

While collecting crdump as part of fw_fatal health reporter dump the PF
may fail to lock the SW reset semaphore. Change the print to indicate if
it was due to another PF locked the semaphore already and so trying to
lock the semaphore returned -EBUSY.
