parentigb: reset the PHY before reading the PHY ID (diff)
igb: re-assign hw address pointer on reset after PCI error
Whenever the igb driver detects the result of a read operation returns a value composed only by F's (like 0xFFFFFFFF), it will detach the net_device, clear the hw_addr pointer and warn to the user that adapter's link is lost - those steps happen on igb_rd32(). In case a PCI error happens on Power architecture, there's a recovery mechanism called EEH, that will reset the PCI slot and call driver's handlers to reset the adapter and network functionality as well. We observed that once hw_addr is NULL after the error is detected on igb_rd32(), it's never assigned back, so in the process of resetting the network functionality we got a NULL pointer dereference in both igb_configure_tx_ring() and igb_configure_rx_ring(). In order to avoid such bug, this patch re-assigns the hw_addr value in the slot_reset handler.
