Default Bug#624794: Missing support for various storage and network devices

Package: linux-2.6
Version: 2.6.32-33
Severity: important

Since Linux 2.6.32 the following updates have been made to storage and
network drivers that might be used during installation. The list is
based on the Kernel Newbies list and may be incomplete. I have
excluded CAN and WAN drivers as unlikely to be useful, and SR-IOV VF
drivers as not necessary (they are a useful optimisation but we
already have PV networking drivers). There are still some platform
drivers in the list that can probably be ignored as not useful in any
current kernel flavour.

I don't think we can cover all of these, even after excluding the
unused platform drivers. So we'll need to prioritise.

Ben.

wl1251: Cherry-pick of support for PG11 chips

To do (or not):

acard-ahci: New driver. Depends on ahci/libahci split so would be tricky
to backport.
ath9k: add support for newer AR9285 chipsets
(53bc7aa08b48e5cd745f986731cc7dc24eef2a9f)
ath9k: add support for AR9271 chipset (fb9987d0f748c983bb795a86f47522313f701a08)
and AR9300 (db3cc53a2faea2da5730304af06a77d343f314a5)
ath9k: add support for the AR9003 2.2 (7284635d2dbc0e055d14bc488c69f8c1d2822ae7)
and AR7010 (b176286276f85e10e8ab3342730c5e39e1ce460b)
ath9k: add support for AR9485 (1435894dcd263fdbdd5e1ea2a684289dff187c34)
atl1c: Add support for AR8151 v2 (8f574b35f22fbb9b5e5f1d11ad6b55b6f35f4533).
There are many other changes in the same commit.
be2iscsi: Add support for BE3 (f98c96b0b6572b5491e954148509b20f08f31491).
This was a new driver in 2.6.32 and based on subsequent commits
appears to be quite broken. I would suggest a wholesale backport.
be2net: add support for Lancer (fe6d2a38b2076cba515dc95b5dc1589a7ab51c17)
bnx2x: Add 57712 support (f2e0899f0f275cc3f5e9c9726178d7d0ac19b2db).
This makes many changes to existing code and will need testing on
old and new devices.
carl9170: New driver, but seems to be meant as a replacment for ar9170usb
and has the same device IDs.
cnic: Add support for 57712 device (ee87a82a28cddbb9267a294172ecb3d3d3bdaa6c).
Probably depends on bnx2x.

Priorities:

Of the existing drivers, I would guess that ath9k, e1000e, igb, iwlagn,
iwlwifi, r8169, rt2x00 and tg3 are the most widely used. Unfortunately
they are also updating quite frequently and likely to be hard to
cherry-pick changes from. So I think we should do some combination of:

1. Look at what other distributions with Linux 2.6.32 have done with
these
2. Ask for guidance from the upstream maintainers
3. Where the driver is vendor-maintained, request that the vendor
tests the backport
4. Try to get broad testing by users in s-p-u or a separate repository

We have fairly limited time to do this before 6.0.2 so whatever we do we
need to move fast.

Ben.

I'd like to see newest Intel network driver ixgbe. I've a few brand new DELL
R510 servers with "04:00.0 0200: 8086:151c (rev 01)" network cards which the
stock Debian 6.0 linux kernel can't use.
