Hm. I'm still a bit confused by this new CPU hotplug API. I understand
the issue you have and indeed unregistering the CPU hotplug callbacks
is a way to solve the problem, but I find it weird that we have to do
this.

Anyway, it's OK to do it, because it's anyway what was done so far. It
is just annoying that there is a duplication of the logic between
mvneta_suspend() and mvneta_stop() on one side, and duplication between
mvneta_resume() and mvnete_start() on the other side.

Hum, OK, indeed. It would have been nicer to have something symmetric,
with the hw/sw parts split in a similar way for the init and deinit of
both txqs and rxqs, but I agree that dropping the RX packets before
going into suspend involves both HW and SW operations.

Thanks!
