Subject: Re: [PATCH net-next] tg3: Override clock, link aware and link idle
 mode during NVRAM dump

From: Prashant Sreedharan <>
Date: Sat, 24 May 2014 01:32:09 -0700

> When cable is not present the clock speed of some of the devices is
> reduced based upon power saving mode setting in NVRAM. Due to this
> NVRAM reads take long time to complete as a result CPU soft lockup
> message is seen. Fix is to override clock, disable link aware and link
> idle modes before NVRAM reads and restore them back after the reads
> are complete. During this period also check if the thread needs to be
> rescheduled and if there are any signals to handle.
> Also decrease the NVRAM command execution timeout value to 1ms.
