Description Oliver Pinter 2016-02-22 11:10:10 UTC
Please MFC the e1000 update, which adds support for the newest Intel Network cards.

The original commit marked this as MFC after 2 weeks, which expired and still not MFCd:

Update em(4) to 7.6.1; update igb(4) to 2.5.3.

Major changes:

    Add i219/i219(2) hardware support. (Found on Skylake generation and newer chipsets.)
        Further to the last Skylake support diff, this one also includes support for the Lewisburg chipset (i219(3)).

    Add a workaround to an igb hardware errata. All 1G server products need to have IPv6 extension header parsing turned off. This should be listed in the specification updates for current 1G server products, e.g. for i350 it's errata #37 in this document: http://www.intel.com/content/dam/www/public/us/en/documents/specification-updates/ethernet-controller-i350-spec-update.pdf

    Avoton (i354) PHY errata workaround added

And a bunch of minor fixes, as well as #defines for things that the current
em(4)/igb(4) drivers don't implement.
