NAME

     msk — Marvell/SysKonnect Yukon II Gigabit Ethernet adapter driver

SYNOPSIS

     To compile this driver into the kernel, place the following lines in your kernel
     configuration file:

           device miibus
           device msk

     Alternatively, to load the driver as a module at boot time, place the following line in
     loader.conf(5):

           if_msk_load="YES"

DESCRIPTION

     The msk device driver provides support for various NICs based on the Marvell/SysKonnect
     Yukon II Gigabit Ethernet controller chip.

     All NICs supported by the msk driver have TCP/UDP/IP checksum offload for transmit, TCP
     segmentation offload (TSO), hardware VLAN tag stripping/insertion features and an interrupt
     moderation mechanism as well as a 64-bit multicast hash filter.  The Yukon II supports TBI
     (ten bit interface) and GMII transceivers, which means it can be used with either copper or
     1000baseX fiber applications.

     The Yukon II also supports Jumbo Frames (up to 9022 bytes), which can be configured via the
     interface MTU setting.  Selecting an MTU larger than 1500 bytes with the ifconfig(8) utility
     configures the adapter to receive and transmit Jumbo Frames.

     The msk driver supports the following media types:

     autoselect   Enable autoselection of the media type and options.  The user can manually
                  override the autoselected mode by adding media options to rc.conf(5).

     10baseT/UTP  Set 10Mbps operation.  The ifconfig(8) mediaopt option can also be used to
                  select either full-duplex or half-duplex modes.

     100baseTX    Set 100Mbps (Fast Ethernet) operation.  The ifconfig(8) mediaopt option can
                  also be used to select either full-duplex or half-duplex modes.

     1000baseTX   Set 1000baseTX operation over twisted pair.  The ifconfig(8) mediaopt option
                  can also be used to select either full-duplex or half-duplex modes.

     1000baseSX   Set 1000Mbps (Gigabit Ethernet) operation.  Both full-duplex and half-duplex
                  modes are supported.

     The msk driver supports the following media options:

     full-duplex  Force full duplex operation.

     half-duplex  Force half duplex operation.

     For more information on configuring this device, see ifconfig(8).

LOADER TUNABLES

     Tunables can be set at the loader(8) prompt before booting the kernel or stored in
     loader.conf(5).

     hw.msk.msi_disable
             This tunable disables MSI support on the Ethernet hardware.  The default value is 0.

SYSCTL VARIABLES

     The following variables are available as both sysctl(8) variables and loader(8) tunables:

     dev.mskc.%d.int_holdoff
             Maximum number of time to delay interrupts.  The valid range is 0 to 34359738 for
             125MHz clock in units of 1us, the default is 100 (100us).  The interface need to be
             brought down and up again before a change takes effect.

     dev.mskc.%d.process_limit
             Maximum amount of Rx events to be processed in the event loop before rescheduling a
             taskqueue.  The accepted range is 30 to 256, the default value is 128 events.  The
             interface does not need to be brought down and up again before a change takes
             effect.

HISTORY

     The msk driver was written by Pyun YongHyeon ⟨yongari@FreeBSD.org⟩ and it is based on sk(4)
     and Marvell's FreeBSD driver.  It first appeared in FreeBSD 7.0 and FreeBSD 6.3.
