Description Andy Gospodarek 2008-11-17 11:28:22 EST
Description of problem:

At least one large system-vendor is shipping systems with the 5716s part.  It is apparently identical to the 5709, so it's just a PCI-ID add.

There is word that OEMs will be distributing this card in the near future (before 5.4 comes out). Simple fix.
Comment 6 Don Zickus 2008-12-02 17:20:19 EST
in kernel-2.6.18-125.el5
You can download this test kernel from http://people.redhat.com/dzickus/el5

Now I install 5709 mission board 163c on SUT with Red Hat kernel-2.6.18-125.el5.
After OS booting, I check below steps to verify 5716s.
1. [root@localhost ~]# ethtool -i eth0
   driver: bnx2
   version: 1.7.9-1
   firmware-version: 4.6.4
   bus-info: 0000:28:00.1
2. dmesg information correctly.
[root@localhost ~]# dmesg | grep BCM
eth0: Broadcom NetXtreme II BCM5716 1000Base-T (C0) PCI Express found at mem f0000000, IRQ 16, node addr 001018570936
eth1: Broadcom NetXtreme II BCM5716 1000Base-T (C0) PCI Express found at mem f2000000, IRQ 21, node addr 001018570938
3. Using xdiag to modify subdevice ID, subvendor ID on 5716s. 
   Then check device information via "lspci" command, below is lspci information:
[root@localhost ~]# lspci | grep BCM
28:00.0 Ethernet controller: Broadcom Corporation NetXtreme II BCM5716S Gigabit Ethernet (rev 20)
28:00.1 Ethernet controller: Broadcom Corporation NetXtreme II BCM5716S Gigabit Ethernet (rev 20)
4. Ping from AUT to remote pc successfully.
5. Checking and make sure 5716s infromation on /usr/share/hwdata/pci.ids.
   The correct 5716s ID already include in pci.ids file.
