[PATCH 5.0 034/146] r8169: fix cable re-plugging issue

From: Greg Kroah-Hartman
Date: Mon Apr 01 2019 - 13:05:37 EST

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


From: Heiner Kallweit <hkallweit1@xxxxxxxxx>

[ Upstream commit 23c78343ec36990709b636a9e02bad814f4384ad ]

Bartek reported that after few cable unplug/replug cycles suddenly
replug isn't detected any longer. His system uses a RTL8106, I wasn't
able to reproduce the issue with RTL8168g. According to his bisect
the referenced commit caused the regression. As Realtek doesn't
release datasheets or errata it's hard to say what's the actual root
cause, but this change was reported to fix the issue.
