Bug Description

== SRU Justification ==

Booting Trusty with kernel 3.13.0-156-generic on a fairly new Intel box with a i40e NIC results in no network. The 3.13 i40e driver doesn't support the following HW:

3d:00.0 Ethernet controller: Intel Corporation Device 37d2 (rev 02)
        Subsystem: Intel Corporation Device 35ce
        Flags: bus master, fast devsel, latency 0, IRQ 37
        Memory at ac000000 (64-bit, prefetchable) [size=16M]
        Memory at ad808000 (64-bit, prefetchable) [size=32K]
        Expansion ROM at ad980000 [disabled] [size=512K]
        Capabilities: <access denied>

Base Board Information
        Manufacturer: Intel Corporation
        Product Name: S2600WFT

This is a Canonical test system and having functional networking with a Trusty kernel would help with - well - testing :-)

== Fix ==

Add a backport driver in addition to the in-tree driver that supports newer versions of the i40e NIC.

== Regression Potential ==

Low. The new driver will only load for NICs that are not supported by the current in-tree driver.

== Test Case ==

Boot a patched kernel and verify the NIC is recognized and the network comes up.

This bug is missing log files that will aid in diagnosing the problem. While running an Ubuntu kernel (not a mainline or third-party kernel) please enter the following command in a terminal window:

apport-collect 1789215

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.

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 the problem still exists, change the tag 'verification-needed-trusty' to 'verification-failed-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!
