Subject: Re: [PATCH net-next 2/4] igb: do not clobber the TSAUXC bits on

This is a step in the right direction, but won't fully work due to this
being called after a MAC reset.

This won't work. We call igb_ptp_reset directly after a HW reset (MAC
reset). TSAUXC data is not maintained. We probably need to store driver
state of the TSAUXC bits, and then re-enable them in this reset path.
This code today is fine, because there was no other state we cared about
in the path.

That being said, I don't think this change breaks anything. I just think
it will not solve the problem.

Thanks,
Jake
