The kernel does not properly probe for and initialize NPE-A for the Intel KIXRP435 board
|Reported by:||ddickey@…||Owned by:||developers|
The kernel support for the KIXRP435 board is based on that for the IXDP425 board, which is somewhat different.
The IXDP425 has NPE-B and NPE-C, while the KIXRP435 has NPE-A and NPE-C.
I'm not sure exactly what other differences there are, but this is very noticeable at OpenWrt boot time.
I created a patch to fix this support for the KIXRP435 and will attach it to this ticket. Please include it in the tree.
It puts NPE-C on eth0 for the LAN and NPE-A on eth1 for the WAN.
