Ok, I'll send 2 series: one for
[6/6] PCI: hv: fix 2 hang issues in hv_compose_msi_msg()
[3/6] PCI: hv: serialize the present/eject work items
These fix real issues reported by Mellanox when they tested SR-IOV with VMs
runnning on Hyper-V. I'll add stable tags for them.

The other series will cover these 4 patces which don't need to go in stable:
[5/6] PCI: hv: hv_pci_devices_present(): only queue a new work when necessary
[4/6] PCI: hv: remove hbus->enum_sem
[2/6] PCI: hv: hv_eject_device_work(): remove the bogus test
[1/6] PCI: hv: fix a comment typo in _hv_pcifront_read_config()

OK.
