e1000/e1000e/igb/ixgb: don't txhang after link down
Jesse Brandeburg [Thu, 7 May 2009 11:07:35 +0000 (11:07 +0000)]
after the recent changes to wired drivers to use only
netif_carrier_off the driver can have outstanding tx work to
complete that will never complete once link is down.  Since the
intel hardware will hold this tx work forever, the driver
notices a tx timeout condition internally and might try
to instigate printk and reset of the part with a
netif_stop_queue, which doesn't work because link is down.

Don't bother arming to tx hang detection when link is down.
