Hi Suresh,

Will these changes break systems with old firmwre?

Hi Jesse,

Sanity tests performed with old firmware and all the test cases passed.

Thanks,
Suresh.

This bug is awaiting verification that the kernel in -proposed solves the problem. Please test the kernel and update this bug with the results. If the problem is solved, change the tag 'verification-needed-saucy' to 'verification-done-saucy'.

If verification is not done by 5 working days from today, this fix will be dropped from the source code, and this bug will be closed.

See https://wiki.ubuntu.com/Testing/EnableProposed for documentation how to enable and use -proposed. Thank you!

Sorry for the delayed response.

SRIOV functionality has been verified with the newer kernel which has this fix.
VF's are initialized properly and ping is working fine from VM to peer.

Thanks for accepting the patches.

Thanks,
Suresh.
