    bnx2x: adding fw 7.2.16 · 6f8990bc
    Barak Witkowski authored
    This new FW adds the ability to aggregate packets for GRO (and not just LRO) and
    also fixes some bugs. Please consider adding it to the FW tree:
    
    1. Added new aggregation mode: GRO. In this mode packets are aggregated such
       that the original packets can be reconstructed by the O/S.
    2. 57712 HW bug workaround - initialized all CAM TM registers to 0x32.
    3. Adding the FCoE statistics structures to the BNX2X HSI.
    4. Wrong configuration of TX HW input buffer size may cause theoretical
       performance effect. Performed configuration fix.
    5. FCOE - Arrival of packets beyond task IO size can lead to crash.
       Fix firmware data-in flow.
    6. iSCSI - In rare cases of on-chip termination the graceful termination timer
       hangs, and the termination doesn't complete. Firmware fix to MSL timer
       tolerance.
    7. iSCSI - Chip hangs when target sends FIN out-of-order or with isles open at
       the initiator side. Firmware implementation corrected to drop FIN received
       out-of-order or with isles still open.
    8. iSCSI - Chip hangs when in case of retransmission not aligned to 4-bytes from
       the beginning of iSCSI PDU. Firmware implementation corrected to support
       arbitrary aligned retransmissions.
    9. iSCSI - Arrival of target-initiated NOP-IN during intense ISCSI traffic might
       lead to crash. Firmware fix to relevant flow.
