> Subject: [Intel-wired-lan] [PATCH net-queue 3/3] e1000e: Avoid missed
> interrupts following ICR read.
> The 82574 specification update errata 12 states that interrupts may be
> missed if ICR is read while INT_ASSERTED is not set. Avoid that problem by
> setting all bits related to events that can trigger the Other interrupt in
> The Other interrupt is raised for such events regardless of whether or not
> they are set in IMS. However, only when they are set is the INT_ASSERTED
> bit also set in ICR.
> By doing this, we ensure that INT_ASSERTED is always set when we read ICR
> in e1000_msix_other() and steer clear of the errata. This also ensures that
> ICR will automatically be cleared on read, therefore we no longer need to
> clear bits explicitly.
