> These can be traced back to the fact that e1000e_systim_reset() skips the
> timecounter_init() call if e1000e_get_base_timinca() returns -EINVAL, which
> leads to a null deref in timecounter_read().
>
> Commit 83129b37ef35 ("e1000e: fix systim issues", v4.2-rc1) reworked
> e1000e_get_base_timinca() in such a way that it can return -EINVAL for
> e1000_pch_spt if the SYSCFI bit is not set in TSYNCRXCTL.
>
> Some experimentation has shown that on I219 (e1000_pch_spt, "MAC: 12")
> adapters, the E1000_TSYNCRXCTL_SYSCFI flag is unstable; TSYNCRXCTL reads
> sometimes don't have the SYSCFI bit set. Retrying the read shortly after
> finds the bit to be set. This was observed at boot (probe) but also link up
> and link down.
>
> Moreover, the phc (PTP Hardware Clock) seems to operate normally even
> after
> reads where SYSCFI=0. Therefore, remove this register read and
> unconditionally set the clock parameters.
