bnxt_en: Fix RDMA driver failure with SRIOV after firmware reset.

bnxt_ulp_start() needs to be called before SRIOV is re-enabled after
firmware reset.  Re-enabling SRIOV may consume all the resources and
may cause the RDMA driver to fail to get MSIX and other resources.
Fix it by calling bnxt_ulp_start() first before calling

We re-arrange the logic so that we call bnxt_ulp_start() and
bnxt_reenable_sriov() in proper sequence in bnxt_fw_reset_task() and
bnxt_open().  The former is the normal coordinated firmware reset sequence
and the latter is firmware reset while the function is down.  This new
logic is now more straight forward and will now fix both scenarios.
