You have been subscribed to a public bug: We have a number of patches to submit to Canonical for inclusion in the their release kernel for Ubuntu 18.04.
So far, most of these patches are upstream in Linus' tree, with some in Dave M's net-next tree. According to the ubuntu-bionic tree, the latest patch included is 8388a6cf ("ibmvnic: Set state UP"). If that's true, we'll need about 15 or more patches. There may be more coming down the pipe soon as well. Here is a tentative patch list with commit hash and name: 1. 69d08dc Allocate and request vpd in init_resources 2. e791380 Revert to previous mtu when unsupported value requested 3. 896d869 Modify buffer size and number of queues on failover 4. a0dca10 Fix IPv6 packet descriptors 5. f689794 Fix IP offload control buffer 6. 3d16613 Fix pending MAC address changes 7. 09fb35ead58c Don't handle RX interrupts when not up 8. 4eb50ceb5c15 Include header descriptor support for ARP packets 9. 269431e737d2 Increase maximum number of RX/TX queues 10. d45cc3a43c43 Rename IBMVNIC_MAX_TX_QUEUES to IBMVNIC_MAX_QUEUES 11. f743106ec140 fix dma_mapping_error call 12. 4e6759be28e4 Feature implementation of Vital Product Data (VPD)? 13. 37798d021131 Add vnic client data to login buffer 14. 2a1bf5111197 Fix failover error path for non-fatal resets 15. c26eba03e407 Update reset infrastructure to support tunable parameters 16. aa0bf8510dac Let users change net device features 17. fdb061056f57 Enable TSO support 18. 154820563dd4 Enable scatter-gather support These should apply cleanly, but I'll check on that.
