Subject: Re: [PATCH 2/2] e1000e: Make WOL info in ethtool consistent with
 device wake up ability

Hi Michal,
Thanks for reviewing,
and sorry for late reply.

I've tested ethtool v5.6 on top of kernel v5.7-rc6, it looks like
the scenario you described will not happen as it will not allow
the user to enable the wol options with device wakeup disabled,
not sure if I missed something:

/sys/devices/pci0000:00/0000:00:1f.6/power# echo disabled > wakeup

ethtool -s eno1 wol g
netlink error: cannot enable unsupported WoL mode (offset 36)
netlink error: Invalid argument

I've not digged into the code too much, but according to
ethhl_set_wol(), it will first get the current wol options
via dev->ethtool_ops->get_wol(), and both the wolopts and
wol.supported are 0 when device wake up are disabled. Then
ethnl_update_bitset32 might manipulate on wolopts and
make it non-zero each is controdict with the precondition that
no opts should be enabled due to 0 wol.supported.

But then there would be an inconsistence between A and B. I was thinking
if there's a way to align them in kernel space and  maintain the difference in user space?

Thanks,
