Description lampa 2012-05-29 18:00:10 UTC
hw.ixgbe.flow_control tunable stopped working in the 2.4.5 version, the variable ixgbe_flow_control is not used at all. Previously it was used in ixgbe_set_flowcntl(). Now adapter->fc is used at that place, but it is not initialized properly from the tunable.


Change ixgbe_attach() at line 530:

        /* Get Hardware Flow Control setting */
        hw->fc.requested_mode = ixgbe_fc_full;


        /* Get Hardware Flow Control setting */
        hw->fc.requested_mode = ixgbe_flow_control;

The same problem exists in the ixv driver.

flow control is now a loader tuneable in ixv(4) but it is an SYSCTL in ixgbe(4).

the "fc" sysctl is what you want here.
