Comment 5 for bug 1715368

Hi Joseph,

we don't see this issue with all of the below kernels:

v4.11 final: http://kernel.ubuntu.com/~kernel-ppa/mainline/v4.11
v4.12 final: http://kernel.ubuntu.com/~kernel-ppa/mainline/v4.12
v4.13-rc1: http://kernel.ubuntu.com/~kernel-ppa/mainline/v4.13-rc1

all these kernels have same bnxt_en 1.7.0 driver and Broadcom NetXtreme-E controllers are getting detected with this driver.

This issue is seen on the Ubuntu 16.04.03 base kernel(4.4.0-87). Below are the Ubuntu 16.04.03 base OS/Kernel details:
