SubjectRe: [PATCH 4.4 051/168] e1000e: fix cyclic resets at link up with active tx
From
Date
Please skip this. It's going to be reverted upstream:
https://patchwork.ozlabs.org/patch/1086838/

while original problem fixed differently:
https://patchwork.ozlabs.org/patch/1086839/

same for 3.18 branch
