Subject: Re: [PATCH] be2net: Revert "make the RX_FILTER command
 asynchronous" commit

From: Sathya Perla <>
Date: Thu,  3 Sep 2015 07:41:53 -0400

> The be_cmd_rx_filter() routine sends a non-embedded cmd to the FW and used
> a pre-allocated dma memory to hold the cmd payload. This worked fine when
> this cmd was synchronous. This cmd was changed to asynchronous mode by the
> commit 8af65c2f4("make the RX_FILTER command asynchronous"). So now when
> there are two quick invocations of this cmd, the 2nd request may end up
> overwriting the first request, causing FW cmd corruption.
> This patch reverts the offending commit and hence fixes the regression.
