      e1000e: workaround DMA unit hang on I218 · e08f626b
      Bruce Allan authored
      At 1000Mbps link speed, one of the MAC's internal clocks can be stopped for
      up to 4us when entering K1 (a power mode of the MAC-PHY interconnect).  If
      the MAC is waiting for completion indications for 2 DMA write requests into
      Host memory (e.g. descriptor writeback or Rx packet writing) and the
      indications occur while the clock is stopped, both indications will be
      missed by the MAC causing the MAC to wait for the completion indications
      and be unable to generate further DMA write requests.  This results in an
      apparent hardware hang.
      Work-around the issue by disabling the de-assertion of the clock request
      when 1000Mbps link is acquired (K1 must be disabled while doing this).

      e1000e: enable ECC on I217/I218 to catch packet buffer memory errors · 28600304
      Bruce Allan authored
      In rare instances, memory errors have been detected in the internal packet
      buffer memory on I217/I218 when stressed under certain environmental
      conditions.  Enable Error Correcting Code (ECC) in hardware to catch both
      correctable and uncorrectable errors.  Correctable errors will be handled
      by the hardware.  Uncorrectable errors in the packet buffer will cause the
      packet to be received with an error indication in the buffer descriptor
      causing the packet to be discarded.  If the uncorrectable error is in the
      descriptor itself, the hardware will stop and interrupt the driver
      indicating the error.  The driver will then reset the hardware in order to
      clear the error and restart.
      Both types of errors will be accounted for in statistics counters.
