Description Bradley 2006-09-25 21:05:41 EDT
Description of problem:

ETHTOOL_OPTS is ignored for ethernet interfaces that are part of a bridge interface

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):


How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Add ETHTOOL_OPTS="speed 100 duplex full autoneg no" to an interface that is
part of a bridge
2. /sbin/ifup ethX
3. ethtool ethX
Actual results:

speed/duplex/autoneg settings are not applied

Expected results:

speed/duplex/autoneg settings are applied

Additional info:

Needs a call to ethtool (*before* calling brctl, so that the STP path costs/etc
are correct)

Patch attached.

BTW, shouldn't all the opts be set before the link is brought up with |ip link
set dev up|, |ifenslave|, etc? Changing these params will just bounce the link
again. I made the patch match the logic in all the other places, though.
