Subject[PATCH 5.7 030/265] bnxt_en: Fix statistics counters issue during ifdown with older firmware.
Date
From: Michael Chan <michael.chan@broadcom.com>

[ Upstream commit c2dec363feb41544a76c8083aca2378990e17166 ]

On older firmware, the hardware statistics are not cleared when the
driver frees the hardware stats contexts during ifdown. The driver
expects these stats to be cleared and saves a copy before freeing
the stats contexts. During the next ifup, the driver will likely
allocate the same hardware stats contexts and this will cause a big
increase in the counters as the old counters are added back to the
saved counters.

We fix it by making an additional firmware call to clear the counters
before freeing the hw stats contexts when the firmware is the older
20.x firmware.

Fixes: b8875ca356f1 ("bnxt_en: Save ring statistics before reset.")
