First, I think Dave Miller likes the Intel Ethernet patches to come from Jeff Kirsher's tree, and that's why I suggested the other mailing list.
Yes, I know Intel wired lan drivers update normally go via Jeff's tree. But IMHO there should not be the only place to discuss the problem and patch. In any case thank you for the suggestion.
Second, instead of your patch, can you try using commit a67bc5ea20106ec "igb: Workaround for igb i210 firmware issue" and also this additional patch:
commit a521563b36fb562d0feff7873bdf4fee0be30570 Author: Todd Fujinaka firstname.lastname@example.org Date: Mon Nov 28 07:53:18 2016 -0800
igb: add i211 to i210 PHY workaround i210 and i211 share the same PHY but have different PCI IDs. Don't forget i211 for any i210 workarounds. Signed-off-by: Todd Fujinaka <email@example.com>
I'd like to backport these fixes to SUSE kernel. Do you know when will these commits go to netdev tree? 64e0b769fe12 igb: Workaround for igb i210 firmware issue. (dev-queue) 26b366e94cb7 igb: add i211 to i210 PHY workaround (dev-queue)
Thank you for your assistance and the patch.
