A SGE queue set timer might access registers while in EEH recovery,
triggering an EEH error loop. Stop all timers early in EEH process.

<looks>

It's deeply weird that t3_reset_qset() does

	memset(&q->tx_reclaim_timer, 0, sizeof(q->tx_reclaim_timer));

There are lots of things in the timer_list which the driver has no
business modifying.  For example, this might break the metadata in
Thomas's debugobjects stuff, which attempts to catch things being done
in the wrong order (I don't think it will, but still...).

Rerunning init_timer() should repair the damage, but I suspect a simple

	q->tx_reclaim_timer.function = NULL;	/* explanation goes here */

would suffice here.


t3_sge_alloc_qset() could use the newer setup_timer().

Hi Andrew,

Your suggestion is implemented in the first patch of the series I just 
posted.
I apologize for the delayed reply.

Cheers,
Divy
