This submission includes 2 patches relating to mlx-trio module:

1. Fix misleading error prints from the IRQ handler

BugLink: https://bugs.launchpad.net/bugs/1979045

SRU Justification:

TRIO IRQs are triggered during normal operation and non-error events such as mlxfwreset and the prints from the handler are misleading to users in such instances.

Replace the dev_err calls with pr_debug. This will ensure that users do not see extraneous error messages from the driver.

[Test Case]
Running mlxfwreset with the trio driver loaded will see a lot of error prints and this patch will fix the same.

[Regression Potential]
Can be considered minimal.

2. Update license info

BugLink: https://bugs.launchpad.net/bugs/1979264

SRU Justification:

mlx-trio module license info is currently only GPL and needs to be updated similar to other Mellanox platform drivers

Change module license from GPL to Dual BSD/GPL

[Test Case]
modinfo prints the updated license info

[Regression Potential]
Can be considered minimal
