Description

ixl(4)/ixlv(4): Update Intel XL710 PF and VF drivers to ixl-1.11.9 and ixlv-1.5.8

Update the legacy (non-iflib) drivers in stable/11 with recent changes from the
Intel out-of-tree version.

Major changes:

  • Support for new BASE-T device with additional link speeds (2.5G and 5G) and EEE
  • Additional I2C access methods backported from ixl-iflib
  • FW LLDP Agent control with sysctl added for X722 devices (this already existed for 710 devices)
  • MAC/VLAN filters handling has been refactored
  • Building and loading if_ixlv as a KLD has been fixed

This is not a MFC since the driver in 12/13 uses iflib, and the decision was
made to not use it in FreeBSD 11 releases.
