Device tree aware EMAC driver
Based on BenH's earlier work, this is a new version of the EMAC driver for the built-in ethernet found on PowerPC 4xx embedded CPUs. The same ASIC is also found in the Axon bridge chip. This new version is designed to work in the arch/powerpc tree, using the device tree to probe the device, rather than the old and ugly arch/ppc OCP layer. This driver is designed to sit alongside the old driver (that lies in drivers/net/ibm_emac and this one in drivers/net/ibm_newemac). The old driver is left in place to support arch/ppc until arch/ppc itself reaches its final demise (not too long now, with luck). This driver still has a number of things that could do with cleaning up, but I think they can be fixed up after merging. Specifically: - Should be adjusted to properly use the dma mapping API. Axon needs this. - Probe logic needs reworking, in conjuction with the general probing code for of_platform devices. The dependencies here between EMAC, MAL, ZMII etc. make this complicated. At present, it usually works, because we initialize and register the sub-drivers before the EMAC driver itself, and (being in driver code) runs after the devices themselves have been instantiated from the device tree.

+ h) 4xx/Axon EMAC ethernet nodes
+
+ The EMAC ethernet controller in IBM and AMCC 4xx chips, and also
+ the Axon bridge. To operate this needs to interact with a ths
+ special McMAL DMA controller, and sometimes an RGMII or ZMII
+ interface. In addition to the nodes and properties described
+ below, the node for the OPB bus on which the EMAC sits must have a
+ correct clock-frequency property.
+
+ i) The EMAC node itself
+
+ Required properties:
+ - device_type : "network"
+
+ - compatible : compatible list, contains 2 entries, first is
+ "ibm,emac-CHIP" where CHIP is the host ASIC (440gx,
+ 405gp, Axon) and second is either "ibm,emac" or
+ "ibm,emac4". For Axon, thus, we have: "ibm,emac-axon",
+ "ibm,emac4"
+ - interrupts : <interrupt mapping for EMAC IRQ and WOL IRQ>
+ - interrupt-parent : optional, if needed for interrupt mapping
+ - reg : <registers mapping>
+ - local-mac-address : 6 bytes, MAC address
+ - mal-device : phandle of the associated McMAL node
+ - mal-tx-channel : 1 cell, index of the tx channel on McMAL associated
+ with this EMAC
+ - mal-rx-channel : 1 cell, index of the rx channel on McMAL associated
+ with this EMAC
+ - cell-index : 1 cell, hardware index of the EMAC cell on a given
+ ASIC (typically 0x0 and 0x1 for EMAC0 and EMAC1 on
+ each Axon chip)
+ - max-frame-size : 1 cell, maximum frame size supported in bytes
+ - rx-fifo-size : 1 cell, Rx fifo size in bytes for 10 and 100 Mb/sec
+ operations.
+ For Axon, 2048
+ - tx-fifo-size : 1 cell, Tx fifo size in bytes for 10 and 100 Mb/sec
+ operations.
+ For Axon, 2048.
+ - fifo-entry-size : 1 cell, size of a fifo entry (used to calculate
+ thresholds).
+ For Axon, 0x00000010
+ - mal-burst-size : 1 cell, MAL burst size (used to calculate thresholds)
+ in bytes.
+ For Axon, 0x00000100 (I think ...)
+ - phy-mode : string, mode of operations of the PHY interface.
+ Supported values are: "mii", "rmii", "smii", "rgmii",
+ "tbi", "gmii", rtbi", "sgmii".
+ For Axon on CAB, it is "rgmii"
+ - mdio-device : 1 cell, required iff using shared MDIO registers
+ (440EP). phandle of the EMAC to use to drive the
+ MDIO lines for the PHY used by this EMAC.
+ - zmii-device : 1 cell, required iff connected to a ZMII. phandle of
+ the ZMII device node
+ - zmii-channel : 1 cell, required iff connected to a ZMII. Which ZMII
+ channel or 0xffffffff if ZMII is only used for MDIO.
+ - rgmii-device : 1 cell, required iff connected to an RGMII. phandle
+ of the RGMII device node.
+ For Axon: phandle of plb5/plb4/opb/rgmii
+ - rgmii-channel : 1 cell, required iff connected to an RGMII. Which
+ RGMII channel is used by this EMAC.
+ Fox Axon: present, whatever value is appropriate for each
+ EMAC, that is the content of the current (bogus) "phy-port"
+ property.
+
+ Recommended properties:
+ - linux,network-index : This is the intended "index" of this
+ network device. This is used by the bootwrapper to interpret
+ MAC addresses passed by the firmware when no information other
+ than indices is available to associate an address with a device.
+
+ Optional properties:
+ - phy-address : 1 cell, optional, MDIO address of the PHY. If absent,
+ a search is performed.
+ - phy-map : 1 cell, optional, bitmap of addresses to probe the PHY
+ for, used if phy-address is absent. bit 0x00000001 is
+ MDIO address 0.
+ For Axon it can be absent, thouugh my current driver
+ doesn't handle phy-address yet so for now, keep
+ 0x00ffffff in it.
+ - rx-fifo-size-gige : 1 cell, Rx fifo size in bytes for 1000 Mb/sec
+ operations (if absent the value is the same as
+ rx-fifo-size). For Axon, either absent or 2048.
+ - tx-fifo-size-gige : 1 cell, Tx fifo size in bytes for 1000 Mb/sec
+ operations (if absent the value is the same as
+ tx-fifo-size). For Axon, either absent or 2048.
+ - tah-device : 1 cell, optional. If connected to a TAH engine for
+ offload, phandle of the TAH device node.
+ - tah-channel : 1 cell, optional. If appropriate, channel used on the
+ TAH engine.
+
+ Example:
+
+ EMAC0: ethernet@40000800 {
+ linux,network-index = <0>;
+ device_type = "network";
+ compatible = "ibm,emac-440gp", "ibm,emac";
+ interrupt-parent = <&UIC1>;
+ interrupts = <1c 4 1d 4>;
+ reg = <40000800 70>;
+ local-mac-address = [00 04 AC E3 1B 1E];
+ mal-device = <&MAL0>;
+ mal-tx-channel = <0 1>;
+ mal-rx-channel = <0>;
+ cell-index = <0>;
+ max-frame-size = <5dc>;
+ rx-fifo-size = <1000>;
+ tx-fifo-size = <800>;
+ phy-mode = "rmii";
+ phy-map = <00000001>;
+ zmii-device = <&ZMII0>;
+ zmii-channel = <0>;
+ };
+
+ ii) McMAL node
+
+ Required properties:
+ - device_type : "dma-controller"
+ - compatible : compatible list, containing 2 entries, first is
+ "ibm,mcmal-CHIP" where CHIP is the host ASIC (like
+ emac) and the second is either "ibm,mcmal" or
+ "ibm,mcmal2".
+ For Axon, "ibm,mcmal-axon","ibm,mcmal2"
+ - interrupts : <interrupt mapping for the MAL interrupts sources:
+ 5 sources: tx_eob, rx_eob, serr, txde, rxde>.
+ For Axon: This is _different_ from the current
+ firmware. We use the "delayed" interrupts for txeob
+ and rxeob. Thus we end up with mapping those 5 MPIC
+ interrupts, all level positive sensitive: 10, 11, 32,
+ 33, 34 (in decimal)
+ - dcr-reg : < DCR registers range >
+ - dcr-parent : if needed for dcr-reg
+ - num-tx-chans : 1 cell, number of Tx channels
+ - num-rx-chans : 1 cell, number of Rx channels
+
+ iii) ZMII node
+
+ Required properties:
+ - compatible : compatible list, containing 2 entries, first is
+ "ibm,zmii-CHIP" where CHIP is the host ASIC (like
+ EMAC) and the second is "ibm,zmii".
+ For Axon, there is no ZMII node.
+ - reg : <registers mapping>
+
+ iv) RGMII node
+
+ Required properties:
+ - compatible : compatible list, containing 2 entries, first is
+ "ibm,rgmii-CHIP" where CHIP is the host ASIC (like
+ EMAC) and the second is "ibm,rgmii".
+ For Axon, "ibm,rgmii-axon","ibm,rgmii"
+ - reg : <registers mapping>
+ - revision : as provided by the RGMII new version register if
+ available.
+ For Axon: 0x0000012a
+
More devices will be defined as this spec matures.
