sfc: Match calls to netif_napi_add() and netif_napi_del()
upstream commit: 718cff1eec595ce6ab0635b8160a51ee37d9268d sfc could call netif_napi_add() multiple times for the same napi_struct, corrupting the list of napi_structs for the associated device and leading to a busy-loop on device removal. Move the call to netif_napi_add() and add a call to netif_napi_del() in the obvious places. [bhutchings: backport to 2.6.29] Signed-off-by: Ben Hutchings <bhutchings@solarflare.com> Signed-off-by: Chris Wright <chrisw@sous-sol.org>
