[PATCH net-next v3 0/4] net: add a regmap-based mdio driver and drop TSE PCS
Posted by Maxime Chevallier 9 months ago
Hello everyone,

This is the V3 of a series that follows-up on the work [1] aiming to drop the
altera TSE PCS driver, as it turns out to be a version of the Lynx PCS exposed
as a memory-mapped block, instead of living on an MDIO bus.

One step of this removal involved creating a regmap-based mdio driver
that translates MDIO accesses into the actual underlying bus that
exposes the register. The register layout must of course match the
standard MDIO layout, but we can now account for differences in stride
with recent work on the regmap subsystem [2].

Mark, Net maintainers, this series depends on the patch e12ff2876493 that was
recently merged into the regmap tree [3].

For this series to be usable in net-next, this patch must be applied
beforehand. Should Mark create a tag that would then be merged into
net-next ?

This series introduces a new MDIO driver, and uses it to convert Altera
TSE from the actual TSE PCS driver to Lynx PCS.

Since it turns out dwmac_socfpga also uses a TSE PCS block, port that
driver to Lynx as well.

Changes in V3 :
 - Use a dedicated struct for the mii bus's priv data, to avoid
   duplicating the whole struct mdio_regmap_config, from which 2 fields
   only are necessary after init, as suggested by Russell
 - Use ~0 instead of ~0UL for the no-scan bitmask, following Simon's
   review.

Changes in V2 :
 - Use phy_mask to avoid unnecessarily scanning the whole mdio bus
 - Go one step further and completely disable scanning if users
   set the .autoscan flag to false, in case the mdiodevice isn't an
   actual PHY (a PCS for example).

Thanks,

Maxime
