parente1000e: Do not write lsc to ics in msi-x mode (diff)
e1000e: Fix msi-x interrupt automask
Since the introduction of 82574 support in e1000e, the driver has worked on the assumption that msi-x interrupt generation is automatically disabled after each irq. As it turns out, this is not the case. Currently, rx interrupts can fire multiple times before and during napi processing. This can be a problem for users because frames that arrive in a certain window (after adapter->clean_rx() but before napi_complete_done() has cleared NAPI_STATE_SCHED) generate an interrupt which does not lead to napi_schedule(). These frames sit in the rx queue until another frame arrives (a tcp retransmit for example). While the EIAC and CTRL_EXT registers are properly configured for irq automask, the modification of IAM in e1000_configure_msix() is what prevents automask from working as intended. This patch removes that erroneous write and fixes interrupt rearming for tx interrupts. It also clears IAME from CTRL_EXT. This is not strictly necessary for operation of the driver but it is to avoid disruption from potential programs that access the registers directly, like `ethregs -c`.
