Thank you for your review.

If both netif_tx_wake_all_queues() and netif_start_queue() result in
clearing __QUEUE_STATE_DRV_XOFF, then is it possible that some
conditions in netif_device_attach() is not satisfied? Without
netif_start_queue(), the virtio_net device does not resume properly
after waking up.

Is it better to report this as a bug first? If I am to do more
investigation, what areas should I look into?


Best Regards
Ake Koomsin
