Subject[PATCH 4.14 034/165] qed: Fix link flap issue due to mismatching EEE capabilities.
Date
4.14-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.

------------------

From: Sudarsana Reddy Kalluru <sudarsana.kalluru@cavium.com>

[ Upstream commit 4ad95a93a702ec4f4fb5159b822797ba67b8cbbe ]

Apparently, MFW publishes EEE capabilities even for Fiber-boards that don't
support them, and later since qed internally sets adv_caps it would cause
link-flap avoidance (LFA) to fail when driver would initiate the link.
This in turn delays the link, causing traffic to fail.

Driver has been modified to not to ask MFW for any EEE config if EEE isn't
to be enabled.

Fixes: 645874e5 ("qed: Add support for Energy efficient ethernet.")
