[Broadcom 5.3.z FEAT] Update bnx2 to 1.8.2b+
Last modified: 2011-06-07 15:04:51 EDT
This bug has been copied from bug #475567 and has been proposed
to be backported to 5.3 z-stream (EUS).
Closing based on following statement:
>>> Ok, keep in mind there was some history on this. The reason this
>>> originally had the 5.3.z flag is because that's what a prod support
>>> customer wanted, however Andy said no, so we went with the hotfix
>>> packages on it. The 5.3.z flag was never removed and then someone
>>> asked again if we were going to do it and Andy said, only if you
>>> isolate a smaller set of patches for 5.3.z. So, Flavio did that (I
>>> think ... some confusion here) and the latest plan was to push those
>>> into the next 5.3.z. The original requestees have gone away, which
>>> made your customer the biggest driving factor behind this request.
>>> All that aside, do you think we should drop this request and do a
>>> kbase article instead (indicating that TSO needs disabled)?

Proposed patch for RHEL 5.3.z
Testing kernel builds are available at:
Testing kernel from http://people.redhat.com/ivecera/rhel-5z-ivtest/kernel-2.6.18-128.1.14.el5.ivtest.x86_64.rpm w/ RHEL 5.3
I tried my testing kernel and issue seems to be solved.
Joe, could you confirm this also?
Sorry, yes, haven't seen any issues w/ this kernel. We ran 72+ hours of traffic "stress" and no issues were seen.
