RE: 10GBASE-R implementation of errored_block_count


Yes, it is the former. A state is "entered" whenever a transition arrow is
taken into that state regardless of whether the transition arrow exited from
that state or another state.

Subject: 10GBASE-R implementation of errored_block_count

As per the implementation of errored_block_count as described in D2.1
(clause, I'm curious as to what is meant by: "under normal
mode, errored_block_count counts once for each time RX_E state is
entered." I'm unclear whether this includes transitions from RX_E back
into RX_E, or whether this is only for transitions into RX_E from states
other than RX_E. I'm guessing it's the former, but I'm hoping someone
can confirm my suspicions. Thanks.
