    patches to disable anti-spoofing in VF (igb & ixgbe)

    tonychung

      Attached please find two patches for the igb and ixdbe drivers that allow a guest instance to set the MAC address.

       

      To enable such features, you need to run this on the host:

                        ip link set dev <interface_name>  vf  < index>    spoofchk off

       

      The igb patch is based on version 5.3.3.5.

      The ixgbe patch is based on redhat el7 3.10.0.-327.4.5.el7 kernel.  (i.e. linux-3.10.0-327.4.5.el7.x86_64/drivers/net/ethernet/intel/ixgbe)

       

      Let me know if that make sense?
