Hi, Jason

The hns3 NIC driver notifies the hns RoCE driver to perform
reset related processing by calling the .reset_notify() interface
registered by the RoCE driver.

There is a constraint on the hip08 chip, the NIC driver needs to
stop the flow before hardware startup reset, otherwise the chip
may hang up.

We've also thought about using locks, but found using locks can
lead to more serious problems because of that restriction of the
chip.
If using locks here, reset processing may wait for uninstallation
to complete, this may lead that NIC driver fails to stop the flow
in time in the reset process, thus causing the chip to hang up.
