net: ethtool: remove error check for legacy setting transceiver type
Commit 9cab88726929605 ("net: ethtool: Add back transceiver type") restores the transceiver type to struct ethtool_link_settings and convert_link_ksettings_to_legacy_settings() but forgets to remove the error check for the same in convert_legacy_settings_to_link_ksettings(). This prevents older versions of ethtool to change link settings. # ethtool --version ethtool version 3.16 # ethtool -s eth0 autoneg on speed 100 duplex full Cannot set new settings: Invalid argument not setting speed not setting duplex not setting autoneg While newer versions of ethtool works. # ethtool --version ethtool version 4.10 # ethtool -s eth0 autoneg on speed 100 duplex full [ 57.703268] sh-eth ee700000.ethernet eth0: Link is Down [ 59.618227] sh-eth ee700000.ethernet eth0: Link is Up - 100Mbps/Full - flow control rx/tx Fixes: 19cab88726929605 ("net: ethtool: Add back transceiver type") Signed-off-by: Niklas Söderlund <niklas.soderlund+renesas@ragnatech.se> Reported-by: Renjith R V <renjith.rv@quest-global.com> Tested-by: Geert Uytterhoeven <geert+renesas@glider.be> Signed-off-by: David S.
