Ok, so maybe, moving:
	cqp_request->request_done = false;
	cqp_request->callback_fcn = NULL;
	cqp_request->waiting = false;
from 'irdma_free_cqp_request()' to 'irdma_alloc_and_get_cqp_request()' 
to make explicit what is reseted makes more sense?

 From my point of view, it is same same: all (re)initialization are done 
at 1 place only.

This would also avoid setting 'waiting' twice (once to false in 
'irdma_free_cqp_request()' and one to 'wait' 
'irdma_alloc_and_get_cqp_request()')
