[Intel-wired-lan] [PATCH 18/19] igc: Change adapter->nfc_rule_lock to mutex

This patch changes adapter->nfc_rule_lock type from spin_lock to mutex
so we avoid unnecessary busy waiting on lock contention.

A closer look at the execution context of NFC rule API users shows that
all of them run in process context. The API users are: ethtool ops,
igc_configure(), called when interface is brought up by user or reset
workequeue thread, igc_down(), called when interface is brought down,
and igc_remove(), called when driver is unloaded.

Note that checkpatch.pl reports an issue with this patch. The issue is a false
positive. There is a comment right above that line referring to the lock.

Here is the report:
