[PATCH 5.15 086/124] net: atlantic: invert deep par in pm functions, preventing null derefs

commit cbe6c3a8f8f4315b96e46e1a1c70393c06d95a4c upstream.

This will reset deeply on freeze and thaw instead of suspend and
resume and prevent null pointer dereferences of the uninitialized ring
0 buffer while thawing.

The impact is an indefinitely hanging kernel. You can't switch
consoles after this and the only possible user interaction is SysRq.

BUG: kernel NULL pointer dereference
RIP: 0010:aq_ring_rx_fill+0xcf/0x210 [atlantic]
aq_vec_init+0x85/0xe0 [atlantic]
aq_nic_init+0xf7/0x1d0 [atlantic]
atl_resume_common+0x4f/0x100 [atlantic]

resolves in aq_ring.o to

0000000000000ae0 <aq_ring_rx_fill>:
/* ... */
baf: 48 8b 43 08 mov 0x8(%rbx),%rax
buff->flags = 0U; /* buff is NULL */

The bug has been present since the introduction of the new pm code in
8aaa112a57c1 ("net: atlantic: refactoring pm logic") and was hidden
until 8ce84271697a ("net: atlantic: changes for multi-TC support"),
which refactored the aq_vec_{free,alloc} functions into
aq_vec_{,ring}_{free,alloc}, but is technically not wrong. The
original functions just always reinitialized the buffers on S3/S4. If
the interface is down before freezing, the bug does not occur. It does
not matter, whether the initrd contains and loads the module before

So the fix is to invert the boolean parameter deep in all pm function
calls, which was clearly intended to be set like that.

First report was on Github [1], which you have to guess from the
resume logs in the posted dmesg snippet. Recently I posted one on
Bugzilla [2], since I did not have an AQC device so far.
