Bug Description

SRU justification:

Impact: The sfc driver was backported from 2.6.33, and as such requires that stable updates from 2.6.33.y be applied. We pick upstream stable patches from 2.6.32.y for the main kernel as part of the kernel SRU policy. But as this specific driver is a backport, updates need to come from a different tree.

Fix: There are currently 3 patches available from stable:

680e3fe449b3a78a95871bbc02398b2bb1a40174 sfc: Change falcon_probe_board() to fail for unsupported boards
068e5818f0d028cc0469ae7ae33368fd71024886 sfc: Always close net device at the end of a disabling reset
fa8472cab002dbbb70bf2b1c975b56f75e5d88c6 sfc: Wait at most 10ms for the MC to finish reading out MAC statistics

Testcase: TBD

Hi Tim,

Please be sure to confirm this issue exists with the latest development release of Ubuntu. ISO CD images are available from . If the issue remains, please run the following command from a Terminal (Applications->Accessories->Terminal). It will automatically gather and attach updated debug information to this report.

apport-collect -p linux 590783

Also, if you could test the latest upstream kernel available that would be great. It will allow additional upstream developers to examine the issue. Refer to . Once you've tested the upstream kernel, please remove the 'needs-upstream-testing' tag. This can be done by clicking on the yellow pencil icon next to the tag located at the bottom of the bug description and deleting the 'needs-upstream-testing' text. Please let us know your results.

Thanks in advance.

These came from upstream as a recommended update for stable, and have been acked by the kernel team, so we'll take them
