r6040 net-driver on new kernels not work(3.X.X)
I have a problem.
I have a motherboard with processor RDC8610. As PHY-chip used tlk100 (Texas Instruments). tlk100 uses "Generic PHY-driver" from kernel.
When I compile a kernel 22.214.171.124 works fine.
When I compile a kernel 3.6.8 or 3.7.8 I have problems in the network.
The built-in network card (r6040) does not work pings.
ifconfig shows no errors, but the "RX bytes"> 0 while the "TX bytes" = 0! It seems that the transmitter is not initialized or not working.
Rarely get messages on the console:
eth1: link UP
eth1: link DOWN
As I see it, the value "TX bytes" from ifconfig increased (but not significantly)
Network cable is not damaged.
I can see that from the kernel version 126.96.36.199 to 3.6.8, the NIC driver r6040 upgraded from 0.26 (30May2010) to 0.28 (07Oct2011).
I attach the configuration files of the kernels.
What is it? Bug in the new driver r6040?
