When updating parameters for the ibmvnic driver there is a possibility of entering an infinite loop if a return value other that a partial success is received from sending the login CRQ.
Also, a deadlock can occur on the rtnl lock if netdev_notify_peers() is called during driver reset for a parameter change reset. This patch set corrects both of these issues by updating the return code handling in ibmvnic_login() nand gaurding against calling netdev_notify_peers() for parameter change requests. -Nathan Updates for V2: Correct spelling mistakes in commit messages. --- Nathan Fontenot (2): ibmvnic: Handle all login error conditions ibmvnic: Do not notify peers on parameter change resets drivers/net/ethernet/ibm/ibmvnic.c | 58 +++++++++++++++++++++++------------- drivers/net/ethernet/ibm/ibmvnic.h | 1 - 2 files changed, 37 insertions(+), 22 deletions(-)
