    SubjectD945GCLF intel atom board & r8169 ethernet broken in linux-2.6.27-rc5??
    Date

    Hi

    I have an Intel Atom D945GCLF based system. It has a realtek RTL8101E
    PCI network interface.

    With linux-2.6.27-rc4 - everything seems fine. I think we've been
    working OK since 2.6.26ish.

    With linux-2.6.27-rc5, "ifconfig eth0" just hangs. lspci -vvx reports,
    after loading the driver,

    > 01:00.0 Ethernet controller: Realtek Semiconductor Co., Ltd. RTL8101E
    PCI Express Fast Ethernet controller (rev ff) (prog-if ff)
    > !!! Unknown header type 7f
    00: ff ff ff ff ff ff ff ff ff ff ff ff ff ff ff ff

    10: ff ff ff ff ff ff ff ff ff ff ff ff ff ff ff ff

    20: ff ff ff ff ff ff ff ff ff ff ff ff ff ff ff ff

    30: ff ff ff ff ff ff ff ff ff ff ff ff ff ff ff ff

    Before I load the driver lspci -vvx looks OK.

    I do not have (much) time to look into this any further but hopefully
    this might help someone.

    I know there are problems with this device on the atom board
    particularly around warm start but thus far I seem to have avoided this
    issue.

    A cold start in this case does not help.

    Lspci.bad comes from -rc5 with the r8169 driver loaded.
    Lspci.good comes from -rc4 with the r8169 driver loaded

    Cheers

    John
