[dpdk-dev] [PATCH v2 1/7] net/bnxt: fix unnecessary delay in port stop

From: Kalesh AP <kalesh-anakkur.purayil at broadcom.com>

VFs and multifunction PFs do not have the privilege to change
link configuration. We force the physical link down as a part
of device stop only for single physical function(SPF).

This change also helps in eliminating the logs when a VF port
is stopped:

"Port 0: link state change event"
"bnxt_print_link_info(): Port 0 Link Up - speed 25000 Mbps - full-duplex"

Fixes: 316e412299fd ("net/bnxt: fix crash when closing")
