and failed set link-state via: ip link set p1p1 vf 0 state enable

RTNETLINK answers: Operation not supported

i am using CentOS 7.4, and checked in ixgbe driver source from centos,there is no ndo_set_vf_link_state handler.

i also checked ixgbe driver from intel driver download from version 3.x to version 5.3.4(latest for now), and no ndo_set_vf_link_state implemention.

is there a plan to support ndo_set_vf_link_state? or some patch available?

thanks a lot.
