Subject: [PATCH] net/sonic: Prevent tx watchdog timeout
commit 686f85d71d095f1d26b807e23b0f0bfd22042c45 upstream.
Section 5.5.3.2 of the datasheet says,
If FIFO Underrun, Byte Count Mismatch, Excessive Collision, or
Excessive Deferral (if enabled) errors occur, transmission ceases.
In this situation, the chip asserts a TXER interrupt rather than TXDN.
But the handler for the TXDN is the only way that the transmit queue
gets restarted. Hence, an aborted transmission can result in a watchdog
timeout.
This problem can be reproduced on congested link, as that can result in
excessive transmitter collisions. Another way to reproduce this is with
a FIFO Underrun, which may be caused by DMA latency.
In event of a TXER interrupt, prevent a watchdog timeout by restarting
transmission.
