> During MTU change, the following events may happen.
> Client-driven CRQ initialization fails due to partner’s CRQ closed,
> causing client to enqueue a reset task for FATAL_ERROR. Then passive
> (server-driven) CRQ initialization succeeds, causing client to
> release CRQ and enqueue a reset task for failover. If the passive
> CRQ initialization occurs before the FATAL reset task is processed,
> the FATAL error reset task would try to access a CRQ message queue
> that was freed, causing an oops. The problem may be most likely to
> occur during DLPAR add vNIC with a non-default MTU, because the DLPAR
> process will automatically issue a change MTU request.
> Fix this by not processing fatal error reset if CRQ is passively
> initialized after client-driven CRQ initialization fails.
