4.9-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.


From: Eli Cohen <eli@mellanox.com>

commit afd02cd3a9b6c04b41d946b5d7f6e17b3fc30c6b upstream.

When enabling many VFs, the total amount of DMA mappings increase
significantly. This causes DMA allocations to take a lot of time
since they are serialized in the kernel.

As a result the driver enters into fatal condition due to
timeout and the system hangs. To recover from this we disable
MR cache for VFs.

PFs will still have a full cache and VFs cache can be manipulated
as usual after driver load.

Fixes: e126ba97dba9 ('mlx5: Add driver for Mellanox Connect-IB adapters')
