Hello Bjorn,

Just checking on the fate of this patch set...

Sure. Do you want me to submit another patch set (bumping up the
version) with this change log, or you'd want to add this change log
while merging?

As Yinghai confirms further down this thread, his issue was confirmed
by Intel to be a bug in the repeater chip.

 I don't know about the details of his scenario, except that when the
adapter was disabled the repeater kept on flapping the link up & down
(and hence disabling the link solved the problem then). Yinghai
couldn't test, but I believe with this patch even if we disable
presence detect interrupt, the "adapter present / no present" messages
would (rightly) convert to "Link Up / Link Down" messages (since the
repeater keeps on flapping the link).

Since it is a platform specific bug, I'm not sure what can be done to
remove those messages except may be reduce the verbosity? If you'd
like I could change all the INFO messages to DBG messages.

Please let me know how to proceed further on this. Also, did you get a
chance to look at the subsequent patches of this patch set, I was
wondering if you had any comments there?

Thanks,

Rajat
