    Subject[PATCH 1/1] staging: hv: Removed unneeded call to netif_stop_queue() in hv_netvsc
    From: Hank Janssen <>

    Removed the call to netif_stop_queue() in netvsc_probe() as
    the queue is not initialized at that point and further call
    to it after queue initialization is really not necessary.

    This change was prompted after an upstream change went into
    2.6.37 (netif_tx_stop_queue) that now checks if netif_stop_queue
    is called before register with netdev is done.

    This will eliminate the warning message to the log when hv_netvsc
    driver starts up.
