Subject: [PATCH 4.9 092/138] e1000e: Avoid receiver overrun interrupt bursts

4.9-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.

------------------

From: Benjamin Poirier <bpoirier@...e.com>

commit 4aea7a5c5e940c1723add439f4088844cd26196d upstream.

When e1000e_poll() is not fast enough to keep up with incoming traffic, the
adapter (when operating in msix mode) raises the Other interrupt to signal
Receiver Overrun.

This is a double problem because 1) at the moment e1000_msix_other()
assumes that it is only called in case of Link Status Change and 2) if the
condition persists, the interrupt is repeatedly raised again in quick
succession.

Ideally we would configure the Other interrupt to not be raised in case of
receiver overrun but this doesn't seem possible on this adapter. Instead,
we handle the first part of the problem by reverting to the practice of
reading ICR in the other interrupt handler, like before commit 16ecba59bc33
("e1000e: Do not read ICR in Other interrupt"). Thanks to commit
0a8047ac68e5 ("e1000e: Fix msi-x interrupt automask") which cleared IAME
from CTRL_EXT, reading ICR doesn't interfere with RxQ0, TxQ0 interrupts
anymore. We handle the second part of the problem by not re-enabling the
Other interrupt right away when there is overrun. Instead, we wait until
traffic subsides, napi polling mode is exited and interrupts are
re-enabled.
