We have a requirement (due to the usage of hardware more recent than June 2019) of using Linux Kernel version 5.8 or higher for Intel NUC… Our Ethernet controller mostly is the one being problematic with this, that requires 5.9 I understand the concerns with the OS update, but we have a deadline for the end of the next month.
The majority of our needs will be covered by 5.8, but the Realtek ethernet driver has one straggler (addition of the device ID for our variant). Would you be able to include a patch from us to backport this one change into the upcoming kernel build for Intel NUC?
Our device fleet is growing by day, and we would really appreciate any help on this… My colleague @klh knows more about this, he is the one in charge of the hardware development…
Thanks in advance!
