Subject: RE: [PATCH 3/3] dm9601: add support ethtool style utility
Date: Fri, 11 Mar 2016 19:08:57 +0800	[thread overview]
Message-ID: <> (raw)

I tested by
 ./ethtool -E eth0 magic 0x9620 offset 0 length 3 value 0xf1 value 0xf2 value 0xf3

I think ethtool need [ value N ] for each byte (so need three "value xx" in above command line), 
am I right?

Oh, I can see it goes wrong~ Thanks~

* I will go a vacation from now on, this issue will be study later.
 Any helpful reference implementation data is appreciated.

So you only tested writing 1 byte at a time.  Try again with 3 bytes
and you'll see how it goes wrong.
