Do not call cancel_work_sync from the work itself, for it my cause 
recursive locking.
detail info:
events/1/10 is trying to acquire lock:
(&adapter->reset_task){+.+...}, at: [<c043e384>] __cancel_work_timer+0x80/0x187

but task is already holding lock:
(&adapter->reset_task){+.+...}, at: [<c043ed6f>] worker_thread+0x127/0x234
other info that might help us debug this:

2 locks held by events/1/10:
#0:  (events){+.+.+.}, at: [<c043ed6f>] worker_thread+0x127/0x234
#1:  (&adapter->reset_task){+.+...}, at: [<c043ed6f>] worker_thread+0x127/0x234

So when atl1c_reset_task be scheduled just set a flag in ctrl_flag, 
to demonstrate it is in reset_task, when atl1c_down is call it will not call 
cancel_work_sync(&adapter->reset_task) if it sees the flag.

Sorry, this won't work.

Your patches, all of them, are corrupted by your email client.  It
turns tab characters into spaces as well as making other textual
modifications to the patch, such that it will not apply.

Please fix this up and resubmit all of your patches when the problem
is corrected.

If you have to, email the patches to yourself and try to apply them
just to make sure.

The use of non-atomic bit operations upon ctrl_flags looks unsafe.  If
a CPU is running atl1c_cancel_work() and then an interrupt happens (on
this CPU or a different one), then the interrupt will set
ATL1C_RESET_IN_WORK.  But the non-atomic operation in
atl1c_cancel_work() can just overwrite that change.
