cxgb3: allow LRO settings through ethtool
Last modified: 2014-06-29 19:00:53 EDT
The cxgb3 driver supports LRO. It is however not controllable through ethtool.
The following patch allows ethtool to control LRO settings for cxgb3.
It has been committed to upstream kernel.org:
We don't have the kernel bits (set_flags and get_flags) to make this happen, so I'm not sure this patch offers much to us, right?
You're right. This patch won't help without the updated ethtool code.
I guess we can close this.
My test kernels have been updated to include a patch for this bugzilla.
Please test them and report back your results.
My scripts automagically added comment #3 since I had originally backported the fix to rhel5 and added to my git tree just in case. It's really not needed for 5.3 however since it doesn't do anything. Closing out.
