Backport: net/i40e/base: fix unknown PHYs incorrect identification
Last modified: 2017-08-08 08:46:39 EDT
Description of problem:
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
OVS 2.6.1 with DPDK 16.11
Steps to Reproduce:
Here’s a DPDK patch (”net/i40e/base: fix unknown PHYs incorrect identification”)
that was submitted on 2016-12-10, too late for DPDK 16.11:
The description states:
The PHY type value for unrecognized PHYs and cables was changed
based on firmware version number. Newer hardware use lower firmware
version numbers and this was causing some PHYs to be identified
as type 0x16 instead of 0xe (unknown).
Without this patch, newer card will incorrectly identify unknown
PHYs and cables.
This change adds hardware type to the check for firmware version
so the PHY type is reported correctly.
This change does not appear to have been backported to DPDK 16.11.2.
