SubjectRe: [PATCH net-next v2 0/6] net/ncsi: Allow enabling multiple packages & channels
From: Samuel Mendoza-Jonas <>
Date: Wed, 24 Oct 2018 10:51:55 +1300

> This series extends the NCSI driver to configure multiple packages
> and/or channels simultaneously. Since the RFC series this includes a few
> extra changes to fix areas in the driver that either made this harder or
> were roadblocks due to deviations from the NCSI specification.
> Patches 1 & 2 fix two issues where the driver made assumptions about the
> capabilities of the NCSI topology.
> Patches 3 & 4 change some internal semantics slightly to make multi-mode
> easier.
> Patch 5 introduces a cleaner way of reconfiguring the NCSI configuration
> and keeping track of channel states.
> Patch 6 implements the main multi-package/multi-channel configuration,
> configured via the Netlink interface.
> Readers who have an interesting NCSI setup - especially multi-package
> with HWA - please test! I think I've covered all permutations but I
> don't have infinite hardware to test on.
> Changes in v2:
> - Updated use of the channel lock in ncsi_reset_dev(), making the
> channel invisible and leaving the monitor check to
> ncsi_stop_channel_monitor().
> - Fixed ncsi_channel_is_tx() to consider the state of channels in other
> packages.

net-next is closed, please resubmit this when net-next opens back up.

Thank you.
