Subject: Re: [PATCH net] net: hns3: fix a not link up issue when fibre port
 supports autoneg

> From: Jian Shen <>
> When fibre port supports auto-negotiation, the IMP(Intelligent

> and the  user's speed separately.
> For below case, the port will get a not link up problem.
> step 1: disables auto-negotiation and sets speed to A, then
> the driver's MAC speed will be updated to A.
> step 2: enables auto-negotiation and MAC gets negotiated
> speed B, then the driver's MAC speed will be updated to B
> through querying in periodical task.
> step 3: MAC gets new negotiated speed A.
> step 4: disables auto-negotiation and sets speed to B before
> periodical task query new MAC speed A, the driver will  ignore
> the speed configuration.
> This patch fixes it by skipping speed and duplex checking when
