SubjectRe: [PATCH] Carrier detect ok, don't turn off negotiation

The timer is supposed to be triggered by carrier detect interrupt. After remove the line noise, the carrier detect interrupt is never triggered again, because the carrier is always ok and it only trigger the timer once, Since the protocol was terminated and no new interrupts happen, the link will never be back. So the case here is that the line noise is good and just good to make the carrier detect still good  but the protocol fail, the timer will be never triggered again.

Of course, if you increase the noise and make even the carrier detect fail, then remove the noise, the link will be up, Because the carrier down and up again and then trigger the timer to restart.

The timer is supposed to restart the protocol again, that's how this
whole thing is designed to work.

I think you are making changes to the symptom rather than the true
cause of the problems you are seeing.

Sorry, I will not apply this until the exact issue is better

Thank you.
