Hi,

For this series:


Benjamin Poirier (4):
  e1000e: Remove unreachable code
  e1000e: Do not read icr in Other interrupt
  e1000e: Do not write lsc to ics in msi-x mode
  e1000e: Fix msi-x interrupt automask

Changes in v3:
Preserve LSC in IMS, LSC events are not delivered otherwise.
Disable CTRL_EXT.IAME to prevent IMC write on ICR read from external
program.

Changes in v2:
Address review comments from Alexander Duyck: extend cleanup of Other
interrupt handler and use tx_ring->ims_val.


The first three patches cleanup handling of Other interrupts and the
last patch fixes tx and rx interrupts. Please consider reading the
description for that patch before proceeding. I believe that the
following simple tracing statements are helpful in detecting the problem
fixed by the last patch.

With that patch but without the patches in this series we can see that rx irqs
occur at unexpected times:

Here's a typical sequence after applying the patches in this series. Notice
that ims is changed. Another printk at the end of e1000e_poll would show it to
be 0x01500004.

          <idle>-0     [000] d.h. 23547.977917: e1000_intr_msix_rx: eth1: rxq0 irq ims 0x01400004

          <idle>-0     [000] ..s. 23547.977961: e1000e_poll: eth1: will enable rxq0 irq
