      net/intel: remove __dev* attributes · 9f9a12f8
      Bill Pemberton authored
      CONFIG_HOTPLUG is going away as an option.  As result the __dev*
      markings will be going away.
      Remove use of __devinit, __devexit_p, __devinitdata, __devinitconst,
      and __devexit.

      e1000e: Change wthresh to 1 to avoid possible Tx stalls · 8edc0e62
      Hiroaki SHIMODA authored
      This patch originated from Hiroaki SHIMODA but has been modified
      by Intel with some minor cleanups and additional commit log text.
      Denys Fedoryshchenko and others reported Tx stalls on e1000e with
      BQL enabled.  Issue was root caused to hardware delays. They were
      introduced because some of the e1000e hardware with transmit
      writeback bursting enabled, waits until the driver does an
      explict flush OR there are WTHRESH descriptors to write back.
      Sometimes the delays in question were on the order of seconds,
      causing visible lag for ssh sessions and unacceptable tx
      completion latency, especially for BQL enabled kernels.
      To avoid possible Tx stalls, change WTHRESH back to 1.
      The current plan is to investigate a method for re-enabling
      WTHRESH while not harming BQL, but those patches will be later
      for net-next if they work.
      please enqueue for stable since v3.3 as this bug was introduced in
      commit 3f0cfa3b

      e1000e: remove use of IP payload checksum · 2e1706f2
      Bruce Allan authored
      Currently only used when packet split mode is enabled with jumbo frames,
      IP payload checksum (for fragmented UDP packets) is mutually exclusive with
      receive hashing offload since the hardware uses the same space in the
      receive descriptor for the hardware-provided packet checksum and the RSS
      hash, respectively.  Users currently must disable jumbos when receive
      hashing offload is enabled, or vice versa, because of this incompatibility.
      Since testing has shown that IP payload checksum does not provide any real
      benefit, just remove it so that there is no longer a choice between jumbos
      or receive hashing offload but not both as done in other Intel GbE drivers
      (e.g. e1000, igb).
      Also, add a missing check for IP checksum error reported by the hardware;
      let the stack verify the checksum when this happens.
