Hi Leon and Liu -

First of all, thanks Liu for tracking this down - it is an issue that needs to be fixed.  The ice_is_aux_ena() functions only
purpose is to determine if this PF supports RDMA functionality.  In probe(), the aux devices are not even initialized if
this test returns false.  If this check fixed the issue for you, the PF you are on does not currently support RDMA.
The bit this test is based on is only set one place in the driver currently - at probe time when we are checking the
capabilities (common_caps) of the device.

That being said, the call to check this should be in ice_plug_aux_dev function itself.  That way it is taken into account for all
attempts to create the auxiliary device.  There is another consideration about disabling RDMA that needs to also needs to be
taken into account to avoid a similar situation.

If it is acceptable, I will create a new patch today and get it out either this afternoon or tomorrow.

Thanks,
Dave E
