[PATCH 3.19.y-ckt 76/86] net/mlx4_en: really allow to change RSS key

From: Kamal Mostafa
Date: Tue Oct 27 2015 - 17:50:46 EST

3.19.8-ckt9 -stable review patch. If anyone has any objections, please let me know.


From: Eric Dumazet <edumazet@xxxxxxxxxx>

commit 4671fc6d47e0a0108fe24a4d830347d6a6ef4aa7 upstream.

When changing rss key, we do not want to overwrite user provided key
by the one provided by netdev_rss_key_fill(), which is the host random
key generated at boot time.

Fixes: 947cbb0ac242 ("net/mlx4_en: Support for configurable RSS hash function")
