  SVN rev 180567 on 2008-07-17 15:46:35Z by gallatin
  Clean up mxge's use of callouts as pointed out by jhb,
  and handle NIC hardware watchdog resets.
  - remove buggy code at the top of mxge_tick() which tried
    to detect a race which is already detected in the kernel's
    callout code.
  - move callout_stop() and callout_reset() into mxge_close()
    mxge_open() rather than doing the callout manipulation
    all over the place.
  - use callout_drain(), rather than callout_stop() to prevent
    a potential race between mxge_tick() and mxge_detach()
    which could lead to softclock using a destroyed mutex
  - restructure the mxge_tick() and mxge_watchdog_reset()
    routines to avoid resetting a callout, and then
    immediately stopping it if the watchdog reset routine
    is called, and fails.
  - enable the driver to handle NIC hardware watchdog
    resets by restoring the NIC's PCI config space, which is
    lost when the NIC hardware watchdog triggers.
