> It's an error if the value of the RX/TX tail descriptor does not match
> what was written. The error condition is true regardless the duration
> of the interference from ME. But the driver only performs the reset if
> E1000_ICH_FWSM_PCIM2PCI_COUNT (2000) iterations of 50us delay have
> transpired. The extra condition can lead to inconsistency between the
> state of hardware as expected by the driver.

> Fix this by dropping the check for number of delay iterations.

> While at it, also make __ew32_prepare() static as it's not used
