Intel Pro/1000 6.2.15

Posted on Monday, October 17 2005 @ 23:38:15 CEST by LSDsmurf

  • Fixed the DRV_LOADED bit setting when disabling the net interface in Linux, AMT doesn't switch to active
  • Fixed access to non-existent registers can cause kernel panic at worst and loss of functionality at best
  • Fixed the e1000.spec file which contained no strings for PCI ID 1099
  • Included Linux support for Kingsport II with Device ID 1099
  • Fixed Tx Hang on 2.6.13 kernel with TSO on with Ophir
  • Fixed different flow control defaults from other NICs
  • Fixed the traffic stops during small packet stress w/napi disabled
  • Fixed the fifo_error counts by not incrementing netdev->fifo_errors
  • Fixed the driver which reads hardware stats even when down.
  • Fixed the traffic stops during small packet stress w/napi disabled
  • Added support for identifying eeprom image version in ethtool register dump
  • Fixed compiling warnings and errors
  • Set flow control watermarks relative to PBA size
  • Fixed system panic with running ifconfig_tst under network stress
  • Added memory allocation failures/tx_timeout counts to stats
  • Corrected the incorrect id string for device id 1013 with subdevice 1013
  • Removed non-intel sub-vendor ids from pci.updates
  • Fixed kernel panic with bridging
  • Fixed netdev errors under rx/tx stress
  • Implement a workaround for premature Tx descriptor WB
  • Fixed when the driver incorrectly detects hang during stress test on 10mb hub
  • Fixed link loss caused by certain operations during SOL/IDER session
  • Fixed autonegotiation which causes the link to drop on switches with Spanning Tree enabled, the link takes longer to recover.
  • Cleared contents of buffer_info struct in clean_tx_irq
  • Fixed the WOL status which was incorrect for the second port of dual port cards
  • Fixed the failures in ethtool loopback diag
  • Fixed the link loss caused by certain operations during SOL/IDER session
  • Fixed the kernel panic with e1000-6.0.54 with 82573 with Knoppix 3.3
  • Fixed the receive problem when MQ enabled
  • Fixed a build problem when mq is enabled and napi is disabled
  • Added support for a printout of the state of Multiqueue with the number of queues.
  • Implemented a single buffer size using 2048 byte descriptors for all receive modes on non PCI Express hardware. Jumbo frames use an appropriate number of 2048 byte descriptors.
  • Added statistics for Multiple Queues
  • Corrected the make which returned warnings
  • Fixed the adapter identification did not work as expected
  • Fixed the WOL status reported by ethtool which did not match the EEPROM
