SubjectRe: [PATCH v2] net: stmmac: dwmac1000: Disable ACS if enhanced descs are not used
From: Remi Pommarel <>
Date: Sun, 8 Mar 2020 10:25:56 +0100

> ACS (auto PAD/FCS stripping) removes FCS off 802.3 packets (LLC) so that
> there is no need to manually strip it for such packets. The enhanced DMA
> descriptors allow to flag LLC packets so that the receiving callback can
> use that to strip FCS manually or not. On the other hand, normal
> descriptors do not support that.
> Thus in order to not truncate LLC packet ACS should be disabled when
> using normal DMA descriptors.
