Bug Description

I'd like to request that the following trivial patch be backported into the trusty kernel:

https://git.kernel.org/cgit/linux/kernel/git/torvalds/linux.git/commit/drivers/net/ethernet/intel/igb?id=e66c083aab32842f225bae2a2c30744bf96abaec

Without this patch, it's extremely difficult to debug packet loss issues on igb interfaces because as soon as you've had one rx drop ethtool will report constant rx drops (because the counter is not reset).

This bug is missing log files that will aid in diagnosing the problem. From a terminal window please run:

apport-collect 1338893

and then change the status of the bug to 'Confirmed'.

If, due to the nature of the issue you have encountered, you are unable to run this command, please add a comment stating that fact and change the bug status to 'Confirmed'.

This change has been made by an automated script, maintained by the Ubuntu Kernel Team.

I don't think logs are relevant since I'm just requesting a backport of a patch that's already in the mainline kernel (since 3.14 I believe).

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-trusty' to 'verification-done-trusty'.

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!

The affected machines are actually running precise with the trusty HWE backport kernel. Is there a version that will install on precise or instructions for building a backport kernel anywhere?
