Prior to this update, the following message appeared in kernel log files:
[bnx2x_extract_max_cfg:1079(eth11)]Illegal configuration detected for Max BW - using 100 instead
The above message appeared on bnx2x interfaces in the multi-function mode which were not used and had no link, thus, not indicating any actual problems with connectivity. With this update, the message has been removed and no longer appears in kernel log files.
