BugLink: http://bugs.launchpad.net/bugs/1694485

== SRU Justification ==
The bug reporter states there was a call trace while injecting error to 
a CAPI card.  This regression was caused by upstream commit 70b565bbdb91.
This bug was fixed by mainline commit ea9a26d117c.  Mainline commit ea9a26d117c
was also cc'd to upstream stable.  However, upstream 4.10 is EOL, so Zesty
never got it.    

== Fix ==
commit ea9a26d117cf0637c71d3e0076f4a124bf5859df

    cxl: Force context lock during EEH flow

== Regression Potential ==
Low.  This commit was already cc'd and accepted to upstream stable, so additional upstream
reviews have been done.

== Test Case ==
A test kernel was built with this patch and tested by the original bug reporter.
The bug reporter states the test kernel resolved the bug.
