[PATCH 3.18 11/38] igb: reset the PHY before reading the PHY ID

From: Greg Kroah-Hartman
Date: Sun Nov 19 2017 - 09:31:11 EST

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


From: Aaron Sierra <asierra@xxxxxxxxxxx>

[ Upstream commit 182785335447957409282ca745aa5bc3968facee ]

Several people have reported firmware leaving the I210/I211 PHY's page
select register set to something other than the default of zero. This
causes the first accesses, PHY_IDx register reads, to access something
else, resulting in device probe failure:

igb: Intel(R) Gigabit Ethernet Network Driver - version 5.4.0-k
igb: Copyright (c) 2007-2014 Intel Corporation.
igb: probe of 0000:01:00.0 failed with error -2

This problem began for them after a previous patch I submitted was

commit 2a3cdead8b408351fa1e3079b220fa331480ffbc
Author: Aaron Sierra <asierra@xxxxxxxxxxx>
Date: Tue Nov 3 12:37:09 2015 -0600

igb: Remove GS40G specific defines/functions

I personally experienced this problem after attempting to PXE boot from
I210 devices using this firmware:

Intel(R) Boot Agent GE v1.5.78

Resetting the PHY before reading from it, ensures the page select
register is in its default state and doesn't make assumptions about
the PHY's register set before the PHY has been probed.
