Dear Kai-Heng,


Thank you for sending version 2.

I’d be great if you added the system and used hardware, you are seeing

A follow-up patch, should extend the message to include the timeout value.

According to the Linux timestamps it’s 98 ms, which makes sense, as (640
* 3 * 50 μs = 96 ms).

What crappy hardware is this, that it takes longer than 100 ms?

Please explicitly state, what the current timeout value is, and what it
is increased to.

640 * 3 * 50 μs = 96 ms
640 * 10 * 50 μs = 320 ms

The macro definition also misses the unit.

/* SerDes Control */
#define E1000_GEN_POLL_TIMEOUT 640

How did you determine, that tenfold that value is good. And not
eightfold, for example? Please give the exact value (Linux log message
timestamps should be enough), what the hardware needs now.

As a commit message summary, I suggest:
