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

Ok, I submit it  again.

In drivers/net/wan/hdlc_ppp.c, some noise on physical line can cause the carrier detect still ok, but the protocol will fail. So if carrier detect ok, don't turn off protocol negotiation

This patch is against the kernel version Linux 4.15-rc8

Subject: [PATCH] netdev: carrier detect ok, don't turn off negotiation

Sometimes when physical lines have a just good noise to make the protocol
handshaking fail, but the carrier detect still good. Then after remove of
the noise, nobody will trigger this protocol to be start again to cause
the link to never come back. The fix is when the carrier is still on, not
terminate the protocol handshaking.
