Subject: Re: [net-2.6 PATCH] ixgbe: Do not run all Diagnostic offline tests
 when VFs are active

From: Jeff Kirsher <>
Date: Thu, 25 Mar 2010 20:06:48 -0700

> From: Greg Rose <>
> When running the offline diagnostic tests check to see if any VFs are
> online.  If so then only run the link test.  This is necessary because
> the VFs running in guest VMs aren't aware of when the PF is taken
> offline for a diagnostic test.  Also put a message to the system log
> telling the system administrator to take the VFs offline manually if
> (s)he wants to run a full diagnostic.  Return 1 on each of the tests
> not run to alert the user of the condition.
