MCTP message is not responded when it's message size longer than 64bytes.

I'm trying to porting some services from Intel-BMC organization including nvmemi-daemon and mctpd for Eagle Stream Archer City Reference Platform, to communicate with storage devices in the backplane through out-of-band. Since I studied the platform, SMBUS from the backplane is connected to the BMC though the PCH, using PCH as a bridge which is transforming MCTP over SMBUS to-from MCTP over PCIe VDM.

 

AST2600 <==MCTP over PCIe VDM==> PCH and FPGA <==MCTP over SMBUS==> HSBP

Communication worked well with a short NVMe-MI command.

However, if I send a MCTP message longer than 64bytes, there is no response.

At first, I thought that split MCTP packet might be a problem.

So, I changed the MTU size to 128 byte and 256 byte by fixing MTU size defines in libmctp-intel and aspeed-mctp driver in linux-aspeed.

But I couldn't get response neither.

So, I stuck here.

If there is anyone that can share any information or hint to debug it, it would be really appreciated.
