Subject: [PATCH net 2/4] iavf: Fix set max MTU size with port VLAN and jumbo frames

From: Michal Jaron <>

After setting port VLAN and MTU to 9000 on VF with ice driver there
was an iavf error
"PF returned error -5 (IAVF_ERR_PARAM) to our request 6".

During queue configuration, VF's max packet size was set to
IAVF_MAX_RXBUFFER but on ice max frame size was smaller by VLAN_HLEN
due to making some space for port VLAN as VF is not aware whether it's
in a port VLAN. This mismatch in sizes caused ice to reject queue
configuration with ERR_PARAM error. Proper max_mtu is sent from ice PF
to VF with GET_VF_RESOURCES msg but VF does not look at this.

In iavf change max_frame from IAVF_MAX_RXBUFFER to max_mtu
received from pf with GET_VF_RESOURCES msg to make vf's
max_frame_size dependent from pf. Add check if received max_mtu is
not in eligible range then set it to IAVF_MAX_RXBUFFER.

Fixes: dab86afdbbd1 ("i40e/i40evf: Change the way we limit the maximum frame size for Rx")
