sfc: Disable soft interrupt handling during efx_device_detach_sync()

[ Upstream commit 35205b211c8d17a8a0b5e8926cb7c73e9a7ef1ad ]

efx_device_detach_sync() locks all TX queues before marking the device
detached and thus disabling further TX scheduling.  But it can still
be interrupted by TX completions which then result in TX scheduling in
soft interrupt context.  This will deadlock when it tries to acquire
a TX queue lock that efx_device_detach_sync() already acquired.

To avoid deadlock, we must use netif_tx_{,un}lock_bh().
