[PATCH 059/102] sky2: Threshold for Pause Packet is set wrong

Mon Apr 8 09:50:14 UTC 2013 -stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.


From: Mirko Lindner <mlindner at marvell.com>

commit 74f9f42c1c1650e74fb464f76644c9041f996851 upstream.

The sky2 driver sets the Rx Upper Threshold for Pause Packet generation to a
wrong value which leads to only 2kB of RAM remaining space. This can lead to
Rx overflow errors even with activated flow-control.

Fix: We should increase the value to 8192/8
