FreeBSD-EN-20:09.igb                                            Errata Notice
                                                          The FreeBSD Project

Topic:          igb interfaces fail to switch to inactive state

Category:       core
Module:         kernel
Announced:      2020-05-12
Affects:        FreeBSD 12.1
Corrected:      2019-10-24 14:18:06 UTC (stable/12, 12.1-STABLE)
                2020-05-12 16:46:14 UTC (releng/12.1, 12.1-RELEASE-p5)

For general information regarding FreeBSD Errata Notices and Security
Advisories, including descriptions of the fields above, security
branches, and the following sections, please visit
<URL:https://security.FreeBSD.org/>.

I.   Background

The igb driver supports Intel Gigabit Ethernet interfaces.

II.  Problem Description

The igb driver does not detect link loss, and the interface does not
transition to "inactive" upon link loss.

III. Impact

Incorrect link state may lead to system-level misbehaviour (for example, lagg
interfaces may not transition to an alternate interface) and may cause
confusion for system administrators.

IV.  Workaround

Bringing the interface down and back up (e.g., "ifconfig igb0 down" followed
by "ifconfig igb0 up") may cause the status to correctly change to inactive.
Systems not using interfaces supported by the igb driver are not affected.

V.   Solution

Upgrade your system to a supported FreeBSD stable or release / security
branch (releng) dated after the correction date, and reboot.

Perform one of the following:

1) To update your system via a binary patch:

Systems running a RELEASE version of FreeBSD on the i386 or amd64
platforms can be updated via the freebsd-update(8) utility:

# freebsd-update fetch
# freebsd-update install
# shutdown -r +10min "Rebooting for errata update"

2) To update your system via a source code patch:

The following patches have been verified to apply to the applicable
FreeBSD release branches.

a) Download the relevant patch from the location below, and verify the
detached PGP signature using your PGP utility.

# fetch https://security.FreeBSD.org/patches/EN-20:09/igb.patch
# fetch https://security.FreeBSD.org/patches/EN-20:09/igb.patch.asc
# gpg --verify igb.patch.asc

b) Apply the patch.  Execute the following commands as root:

# cd /usr/src
# patch < /path/to/patch

c) Recompile your kernel as described in
<URL:https://www.FreeBSD.org/handbook/kernelconfig.html> and reboot the
system.

VI.  Correction details

The following list contains the correction revision numbers for each
affected branch.
