While testing VF spawn/destroy the following panic occured.

BUG: unable to handle kernel NULL pointer dereference at 0000000000000029
[...]
Workqueue: i40e i40e_service_task [i40e]
RIP: 0010:i40e_sync_vsi_filters+0x6fd/0xc60 [i40e]
[...]
Call Trace:

Investigation revealed a race where pf->vf[vsi->vf_id].trusted may get
accessed by the watchdog via i40e_sync_filters_subtask() although
i40e_free_vfs() already free'd pf->vf.
To avoid this the call to i40e_sync_vsi_filters() in
i40e_sync_filters_subtask() needs to be guarded by __I40E_VF_DISABLE,
which is also used by i40e_free_vfs().

Note: put the __I40E_VF_DISABLE check after the
__I40E_MACVLAN_SYNC_PENDING check as the latter is more likely to
trigger.
