[E1000-devel] ARM support for igb driver

It just took me one Google search and I found that VDM is being used for MCTP. Searching the datasheet for the i210 (that I'm sure I suggested you consult) discusses MCTP in section 10.7.

I can't see there is a way to turn off MCTP.

Notsure about root port, Can't it be disabled by Intel device?
