I experienced this problem (only) three times until now. If I remember
correctly the last time with 3.2.1. I still do not know how to reproduce
this.

The work around is to unplug and replug the network cable or to unload
the module and load it again.

That sounds promising. It would be great if this could be fixed. Please
tell me how I can get you better debugging information next time this
happens.

Please find the messages from the Linux kernel ring buffer (`dmesg`)
attached at the end.

(good PR, nice)

An 'ethtool -d' and a 'mii-tool -v' of the device after a successful resume
and a failed one could help if it's a driver thing.

You may check if runtime power management is enabled or not, especially
after a failed resume. See the /sys/devices/pci....:../....:..:..../power
directory and its control, runtime_enabled and runtime_status files
(control = on -> runtime PM disabled, see Documentation/power/runtime_pm.txt)
If it is enabled and the link does not come up fast enough (5 s), runtime
PM will suspend the device. It should not matter as long as the link is
still present because the device should (TM) soon generate a power management
event. The latter not happening or the PME being ignored could explain
the bug. If so, temporarily disabling runtime PM for your device after a
failed resume instead of removing the module or the cable may be enough
to recover the link. It's just a guess though.

Please stay with v3.2 or above in the meantime.

Dear Francois,


thank you for your fast reply.

The problem has not shown up again until now so I only send the output
from the successful resume. Currently Linux version 3.2.4 is installed.
The following outputs are identical after startup and (a successful)
resume.

The document is online at [1].

For some reason the ethernet controller is not listed under
`/sys/devices`.

$ lspci | grep RTL
02:00.0 Ethernet controller: Realtek Semiconductor Co., Ltd. RTL8111/8168B PCI Express Gigabit Ethernet controller (rev 01)

$ ls /sys/devices/

I use `/sys/bus/pci/devices` instead.

So judging from the output above runtime power management is disabled
after a fresh boot and (a successful) resume and something else went
wrong.

I will report back as soon as I get a failed resume.

I will.


Thanks,

Right on time a suspend cycle later the problem turned up again.

Now from a failed resume.

$ sudo ethtool eth0
Settings for eth0:

From a failed resume it looks like the following.

$ sudo mii-tool -v
eth0: negotiated 100baseTx-FD flow-control, link ok
product info: vendor 00:07:32, model 17 rev 2
basic mode: autonegotiation enabled

link partner: 1000baseT-HD 1000baseT-FD 100baseTx-FD 100baseTx-HD 10baseT-FD 10baseT-HD flow-control

This seems to be identical too.

From a failed resume the output is like the following.

$ more /sys/bus/pci/devices/0000:02:00.0/power/{control,runtime_enabled,runtime_status}

This also seems identical.

Unfortunately I was not able to change the control parameter and always
got »The argument is invalid.« as an response.

# echo off > /sys/bus/pci/devices/0000:02:00.0/power/control
bash: echo: Schreibfehler: Das Argument ist ungültig.
# echo 1 > /sys/bus/pci/devices/0000:02:00.0/power/control

bash: echo: Schreibfehler: Das Argument ist ungültig.

Here are now some more values and outputs from a failed resume. Maybe
they are useful.

Two link events within 20 us. /me wonders...

The datasheet states "[the PHYStatus] register is updated continuously at
maximum periods of 300us." but it is far from clear that the coherency
with the interrupt status register can be taken for granted. Hayes ?

Paul, can you try the hack below ?

Only ten 24 us difference. But during this resume process the network
came back up fine. Also in my prior pasted output this is also shown at
the beginning but the network worked fine.

This event during resume sometimes shows up and sometimes it does not. I
could not find a correlation between successful and failed resumes.

Here it did not work and the link did not come back up. There is over half a second time bet

I will try this hack next week. Thank you!

Could it be that there is something wrong with the locking though or
parallel execution? Sometimes

[32598.618289] r8169 0000:02:00.0: eth0: link down

is shown before

[32599.249802] r8169 0000:02:00.0: PME# enabled

and sometimes it is not or only afterward.


Thanks,

Paul
