Changes and New Feature
NOTE: This firmware (with a new GPIO configuration) improves long-term ConnectX-7 reliability, and it is strongly desired that all customers upgrade to this version (or later).
|NC-SI Channels||Added support for two passthrough channels on dual-port adapter cards.|
|Expansion ROM||Added a caching mechanism to improved expansion ROM performance and to avoid any slow boot occurrences when loading the expansion ROM driver.|
|Live Migration Support for Image Size above 4GB||Added support for image size above 4GB when performing a live migration by splitting the image to chunks.|
|Crypto Algorithms||Extended the role-based authentication to cover all crypto algorithms. Now the TLS. IPsec. MACsec. GCM, mem2mem, and NISP work when nv_crypto_conf.crypto_policy = CRYPTO_POLICY_FIPS_LEVEL_2, meaning all cryptographic engines can also work in wrapped mode and not only in plaintext mode.|
|DSCP (priority) of ACK Packets||Added the ability to configure the DSCP (priority) of ACK packets using the ROCE_ACCL access register.|
|Monitoring and Notification Mechanism for the Flash Interface||Added internal monitoring and external notification mechanism to detect over access to the flash interface and reduce access to it to avoid exceeding some hardware limitation on that interface.|
In extreme cases, if this mechanism is not sufficient, the user will be notified.
|Reserved mkey||Added new support for reserved mkey index range. When enabled, a range of mkey indexes is reserved for mkey by name use.|
|Bug Fixes||See Bug Fixes in this Firmware Version section.|
