[Intel-wired-lan] [PATCH S8 15/16] ice: Avoid nested RTNL locking in ice_dis_vsi

From: Dave Ertman <david.m.ertman at intel.com>

ice_dis_vsi() performs an rtnl_lock() if it detects a netdev that is
running on the VSI. In cases where the RTNL lock has already been
acquired, a deadlock results. Add a boolean to pass to ice_dis_vsi to
tell it if the RTNL lock is already held.
