Subject: Re: [PATCH net] net/ibmvnic: Update MAC address settings after
 adapter reset

From: Thomas Falcon <>
Date: Thu,  9 May 2019 23:13:43 -0500

> It was discovered in testing that the underlying hardware MAC
> address will revert to initial settings following a device reset,
> but the driver fails to resend the current OS MAC settings. This
> oversight can result in dropped packets should the scenario occur.
> Fix this by informing hardware of current MAC address settings 
> following any adapter initialization or resets.
