Subject: [Intel-wired-lan] [PATCH net-next V2 6/6] e1000e: call ndo_stop() instead of dev_close() when running offline selftest
Importance: High

Calling dev_close() causes IFF_UP to be cleared which will remove the interfaces routes and some addresses. That's probably not what the user intended when running the offline selftest. Besides this does not happen if the interface is brought down before the test, so the current behaviour is inconsistent.
Instead call the net_device_ops ndo_stop function directly and avoid touching IFF_UP at all.

V2: rename e1000_open(), e1000_close() to e1000e_open(), e1000e_close() to avoid name clash with e1000.
