> 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.
