After destroying the EQ, the object responsible for generating interrupts, call
synchronize_irq() to ensure that any handler routines running on other CPU
cores finish execution. Only then free the EQ buffer. This patch solves a very
rare case when we get panic on driver unload.
The same thing is done when we destroy a CQ which is one of the sources
generating interrupts. In the case of CQ we want to avoid completion handlers
on a CQ that was destroyed. In the case we do the same to avoid receiving
asynchronous events after the EQ has been destroyed and its buffers freed.
