Subject: Re: [ PATCH 1/1 2.6.25-rc9] bnx2: Add EEH support in bnx2x driver

Hi Michael Chan,

Thanks for your comments!

Yes. Most of network interface functions called by net/core/dev.c layer
which hold rtnl_lock()/rtcl_unlock(). We may need to add
rtnl_lock()/rtnl_unlcok() in those callback functions.

>Shouldn't we attach first before netif_start?

>>From my understanding, network interface function dev->open will call
device driver's open function to initialize internal data structures and
enable interrupt, then driver starts the receive queue by calling
netif_start_queue.

Looks bnx2_netif_start() enables hardware interrupt and receive polling
interrupt. So I think we can do netif_device_attach after
bnx2_netif_start() according to dev->open route concept.

Thanks,
Wendy
