Subject: Re: [PATCH v2 0/2] net: davinci_emac: Fix interrupt requests and
 error handling

From: Christian Riesch <>
Date: Mon, 24 Mar 2014 13:46:25 +0100

> since commit 6892b41d9701283085b655c6086fb57a5d63fa47 (Linux 3.11) the
> davinci_emac driver is broken. After doing ifconfig down, ifconfig up,
> requesting the interrupts for the driver fails. The interface remains dead
> until the board is rebooted.
> The first patch in this patchset reverts commit
> 6892b41d9701283085b655c6086fb57a5d63fa47 partially and makes the driver
> useable again.
> During the work on the first patch, a number of bugs in the error handling
> of the driver's ndo_open code were found. The second patch fixes these bugs.
> I believe the first patch meets the rules for stable kernels, I therefore added

Series applied and patch #1 queued up for -stable, thanks!
