== SRU Justification ==
Mellanox has submitted the following patch upstream that's important for SR-IOV in Azure.

This bug is resolved by commit 4cbe4dac82e4, which landed in mainline as of
v4.11-rc1.


A SRU request was already sent for Xenial and the commit was already applied to Zesty.
This SRU request is for only Yakkety, since Yakkety required a backport.  Both Xenail
and Zesty were clean picks.


== Fix ==
commit 4cbe4dac82e423ecc9a0ba46af24a860853259f4

    net/mlx4_core: Avoid delays during VF driver device shutdown

== 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.
