#14167 new enhancement

AR8327 doesn't support Jumbo frames (the *configured* MTU is too low)

Reported by: anonymous Owned by: developers
Priority: normal Milestone: Chaos Calmer 15.05
Component: kernel Version: Trunk
Keywords: Cc:


target/linux/generic/files/drivers/net/phy/ar8216.c:ar8327_init_globals uses:

/* setup MTU */
ar8xxx_rmw(priv, AR8327_REG_MAX_FRAME_SIZE,

AR8327_MAX_FRAME_SIZE_MTU, 1518 + 8 + 2);

And ar8327_sw_attr_globals doesn't defines any function to change the MTU.

But says it supports "Jumbo Frame support up to 9KB (full duplex)". And in my tests the switch works fine with at least MTUs as big as the NIC in my computer supports.

I don't have the datasheet (is it available somewhere?), and I am not sure where the "+ 8 + 2" in ar8327_init_globals() comes from. But could this be modified to either support Jumbo frames by default, or functions to set/get the MTU be added?
