Subject[PATCH AUTOSEL 4.19 05/11] s390/qeth: fix false reporting of VNIC CHAR config failure
Date
From: Alexandra Winter <wintera@linux.ibm.com>

[ Upstream commit 68c57bfd52836e31bff33e5e1fc64029749d2c35 ]

Symptom: Error message "Configuring the VNIC characteristics failed"
in dmesg whenever an OSA interface on z15 is set online.

The VNIC characteristics get re-programmed when setting a L2 device
online. This follows the selected 'wanted' characteristics - with the
exception that the INVISIBLE characteristic unconditionally gets
switched off.

For devices that don't support INVISIBLE (ie. OSA), the resulting
IO failure raises a noisy error message
("Configuring the VNIC characteristics failed").
For IQD, INVISIBLE is off by default anyways.

So don't unnecessarily special-case the INVISIBLE characteristic, and
thereby suppress the misleading error message on OSA devices.

Fixes: caa1f0b10d18 ("s390/qeth: add VNICC enable/disable support")
