      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.
