Subject: RE: [PATCH 2/3] dm9601: manage eeprom to assure the chip for correct operation

Yes, this is to fixup purpose.

My customer buy "net101 USB20" netcards,
It was manifactured by some company and in the market.
We find it can not work due to eeprom wrong.

This fixup make it correct.
I focus on the essential eeprom words only.
Yes, need to reset the device once the eeprom is updated.
(I don't know how to let the device reset by software ?
 Only un-plug and then plug the device.)

With render I guess you mean something like fixup? I'm not sure we want
to do this automatically without an explicit action from the user.

How common are these adapters without valid eeprom? What happens if the
eeprom content isn't fixed?

Do we need to reset the device once the eeprom is updated?
