SubjectRE: [PATCH net-next v3 6/6] net/ncsi: Configure multi-package, multi-channel modes with failover
Date
Hi Samuel,

The extra patch fixed most issues but I see another corner case.

Thanks,
Justin

This one is fixed by your extra patch but I see another corner case. Basically,
the issue is due to the link status is not updating during the process of
choosing the active channel. During the process, maybe we should find a
chance to send Get Link Status command to all whitelist channels.

Here is my step.
1. All four channels plug Ethernet cable.
2. BMC starts without any multi-package/multi-channel configuration.
3. The ncsi0 channel is selected by NC-SI driver.
4. Remove cable from ncsi0.
5. The ncsi1 channel is selected by NC-SI driver.
6. Remove cable from ncsi1.
7. The ncsi2 channel is selected by NC-SI driver.
8. Insert cable for ncsi0. Link status will not be updated.
9. Remove cable from ncsi2.
10. The ncsi3 channel is selected by NC-SI driver.
11. Remove cable from ncsi3.
12. The selected channel is ncsi3 without link.

This one is fixed.
