mlx5_dev_close currently will set priv->sh->port[priv->dev_port -
1].nl_ih_port_id to RTE_MAX_ETHPORTS to avoid mlx5_dev_interrupt_nl_cb
to use the port's dev_private, because later the rte_eth_dev_close
will free the dev_private and set the pointer to NULL.

However, since mlx5_dev_interrupt_nl_cb is running in another thread,
I think the race still exists. So perhaps an easy fix is to wait for
1ms to avoid this race.
