The setup of MSI with Hyper-V host was sleeping with locks held.  This
error is reported when doing SR-IOV hotplug with kernel built with lockdep:

    BUG: sleeping function called from invalid context at kernel/sched/completion.c:93
    in_atomic(): 1, irqs_disabled(): 1, pid: 1405, name: ip
    3 locks held by ip/1405:

The workaround is to poll for host response instead of blocking on
