Bug Description

On precise, any reasonable amount of network traffic on a PCIe 5719C tg3 results in an oops and the NIC going offline until a reboot. See the attached kernel log for examples (grep for "Call Trace").

This is fixed by applying the following two upstream commits to precise:

2c55a3d08ade44a778c182c220a7907ec65d5fb8 -- tg3: Scale back code that modifies MRRS
0b471506712dd734964b3270d2aa88160712c262 -- tg3: Recode PCI MRRS adjustment as a PCI quirk

Both apply cleanly to precise (except for line offsets), and I've confirmed on live hardware with ~12h of continuous upload/download that they fix the problem. Before patching, the bug would trigger within seconds/minutes of initiating any sort of transfers.

To be clear, these commits are present in both quantal and raring, and both those kernels have been tested to work fine on this hardware, so only precise needs the backport.

This bug is awaiting verification that the kernel for Precise in -proposed solves the problem (3.2.0-38.59). Please test the kernel and update this bug with the results. If the problem is solved, change the tag 'verification-needed-precise' to 'verification-done-precise'.

If verification is not done by one week 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!

The verification of this Stable Release Update has completed successfully and the package has now been released to -updates. Subsequently, the Ubuntu Stable Release Updates Team is being unsubscribed and will not receive messages about this bug report. In the event that you encounter a regression using the package from -updates please report a new bug using ubuntu-bug and tag the bug report regression-update so we can easily find any regresssions.
