SubjectRe: [PATCH net v4] net/ncsi: handle overflow when incrementing mac address
From: Tao Ren <>
Date: Wed, 24 Apr 2019 01:43:32 +0000

> Previously BMC's MAC address is calculated by simply adding 1 to the
> last byte of network controller's MAC address, and it produces incorrect
> result when network controller's MAC address ends with 0xFF.
> The problem can be fixed by calling eth_addr_inc() function to increment
> MAC address; besides, the MAC address is also validated before assigning
> to BMC.
