> In kexec scenario, we failed to load the mlx4 driver in the
> second kernel because the ownership bit was hold by the first
> kernel without release correctly.
> The patch adds shutdown() interface so that the ownership can
> be released correctly in the first kernel. It also helps avoiding
> EEH error happened during boot stage of the second kernel because
> of undesired traffic, which can't be handled by hardware during
> that stage on Power platform.
