LPC546xx SDK2.2 Ethernet: code mistake

There is a mistake in the function ENET_DescriptorInit of SDK2.2:


The original order is:

  1. Determine, whether the RX interrupt is enabled:
    intRxEnable = (base->DMA_CH[channel].DMA_CHX_INT_EN & ENET_DMA_CH_DMA_CHX_INT_EN_RIE_MASK) ? true : false;
  2. Initialize TX descriptors:
    if (ENET_TxDescriptorsInit(base, bufferConfig, intTxEnable, channel) != kStatus_Success) ...
  3. Determine, whether the TX interrupt is enabled:
    intTxEnable = (base->DMA_CH[channel].DMA_CHX_INT_EN & ENET_DMA_CH_DMA_CHX_INT_EN_TIE_MASK) ? true : false;
  4. Initialize RX descriptors:
    if (ENET_RxDescriptorsInit(base, bufferConfig, intRxEnable, channel, doubleBuffEnable) != kStatus_Success) ...


The problem is: in step 2 the variable intTxEnable is used uninitialized.

One possible order of the steps would be: 3-2-1-4
