Divy,

What do you think about the following patch -- should we try and get this added
to 5.1?

Comment 2 Divy Le Ray 2007-08-14 17:22:56 EDT
Andy, 

It looks good. 

I understood from comment #39 in 222543 that this patch was included in your 
latest images, which we're currently testing. Am I right ?

Divy
Comment 3 Andy Gospodarek 2007-08-14 17:31:36 EDT
Divy,

You are correct.  The sooner you can provide feedback the better because I'd
like to get these updates included.

Do you see this patch as an absolute requirement for you (i.e. do they have
fixes that must be present for the cards to work well)?  I know the checksum
offload didn't with the first patch, but if there is anything else you remember,
let us know.

Thanks,

-andy
Comment 5 Divy Le Ray 2007-08-14 18:03:07 EDT
IMHO, this patch should be included. The driver would use correct profiles for 
both sysfs and interrupt handler routines. We're currently testing a kernel 
image that includes thee bits. 

I'll confirm the current state of testing after touching base with QA. 
Comment 6 Jay Turner 2007-08-15 09:14:23 EDT
Can we depend on Chelsio for performing full regression testing on the updated
driver?
Comment 7 Andy Gospodarek 2007-08-15 09:27:04 EDT
Jay, we can.  They are currently regression testing my test kernels which
contain this patch.

in 2.6.18-49.el5
