fm10k: ensure we process SM mbx when processing VF mbx
When we process VF mailboxes, the driver is likely going to also queue up messages to the switch manager. This process merely queues up the FIFO, but doesn't actually begin the transmission process. Because we hold the mailbox lock during this VF processing, the PF<->SM mailbox is not getting processed at this time. Ensure that we actually process the PF<->SM mailbox in between each PF<->VF mailbox. This should ensure prompt transmission of the messages queued up after each VF message is received and handled.
