Subject: [dpdk-dev] [PATCH] net/mlx5: fix link state update
Date: Fri, 27 Mar 2020 18:24:49 +0100
Message-ID: <20200327172449.6514-1-bganne@cisco.com> (raw)

mlx5 PMD refuses to update link state if link speed is defined but
status is down or if link speed is undefined but status is up, even if
the ioctl() succeeded.
This prevents application to detect link up/down event, especially when
the link speed is not correctly detected.
As link speed is nice to have whereas link status is mandatory for
operations, always update link state regardless of link speed. The
application can then check link speed if needs be.

Following the discussion on dpdk-users [1], I am submitting a tentative
patch.
