Linux driver was updated with fixes for the following issues:

3.       The driver accurately reports AUI-C2C PHY type as KR ethtool link mode.

Products Affected:

100 GbE Intel® Ethernet Network Adapters – only if you run into above mentioned issues on a Linux system


Other Information:


If you are affected by the issues listed above, it is recommended that you update to the Complete Driver Pack file. Otherwise, there is no need to update. The driver in the previously released package is still valid. All other files remain as is; there is no impact to other products.
