[Intel-wired-lan] [next PATCH S53-V2 5/5] i40e: lock service task correctly

From: Mitch Williams <mitch.a.williams at intel.com>

The service task lock was being set in the scheduling function, not the
actual service task. This would potentially leave the bit set for a long
time before the task actually ran. Furthermore, if the service task
takes too long, it calls the schedule function to reschedule itself -
which would fail to take the lock and do nothing.

Instead, set and clear the lock bit in the service task itself. In the
process, get rid of the i40e_service_event_complete() function, which is
really just two lines of code that can be put right in the service task
itself.

Testing Hints : Should be no functional change, particularly around 
link up/down events. This is prep work for using this lock bit in 
the client.
