Subject: on kernel 2.6.34.15, vlan and raw packets can not be received with
 gfar-enet nic

Hi, Sandeep Gopalpet

I am a developer. Now I confronted an interesting phenomena. When I used 
linux kernel 2.6.34.15 on freescale-p2020, I can not receive raw and 
vlan packets on gfar-enet nic. But with e1000e nic, we can make vlan and 
raw packets work well. I looked into the source code and find that maybe 
it is related with hardware insert and remove vlan head. But I have no 
the specifications of gfar-enet nic. Would you like to give some 
document or some guides?

Thanks a lot.
Zhu Yanjun

The steps are as below.

1. I boot two freescale-p2020 boards with linux kernel 2.6.34.15, then I 
connected 2 gfar-enet nic cards with a direct network line;

2. On board 1, I checked the driver of eth0

ethtool -i eth0

driver: gfar-enet
version: 1.3
firmware-version: N/A
bus-info: N/A

On board 2, I checked the driver of eth1

ethtool -i eth1

driver: gfar-enet
version: 1.3
firmware-version: N/A
bus-info: N/A

3. Then I configure the ip address on the above 2 nic cards.

On board 1,

ifconfig eth0 192.168.1.13/24 up

On board 2,

ifconfig eth1 192.168.1.196/24 up

4. We can access the other board on one board.
For example, on board 1, we can ping board 2.

root@...20rdb:/root> ping 192.168.1.196
PING 192.168.1.196 (192.168.1.196) 56(84) bytes of data.
64 bytes from 192.168.1.196: icmp_req=1 ttl=64 time=2.92 ms
64 bytes from 192.168.1.196: icmp_req=2 ttl=64 time=0.096 ms

5. We configure vlan on these 2 boards.
On board 1,

modprobe 8021q
vconfig add eth0 4091
ifconfig eth0.4091 10.1.1.13/24 up

On board 2,

modprobe 8021q
vconfig add eth1 4091
ifconfig eth1.4091 10.1.1.196/24 up

6. We can access the other board on one board through vlan.
For example, on board 1, we can ping board 2 through vlan nic.

root@...20rdb:/root> ping 10.1.1.196
PING 10.1.1.196 (10.1.1.196) 56(84) bytes of data.
64 bytes from 10.1.1.196: icmp_req=1 ttl=64 time=2.92 ms
64 bytes from 10.1.1.196: icmp_req=2 ttl=64 time=0.096 ms

But we can not access the other board on one board through raw nic.
For example, on board, we can not ping board 2.

root@...20rdb:/root> ping 192.168.1.196
 From 192.168.1.196 icmp_seq=1 Destination Host Unreachable
 From 192.168.1.196 icmp_seq=2 Destination Host Unreachable
 From 192.168.1.196 icmp_seq=3 Destination Host Unreachable
