2021-02-17net: mdio: Remove of_phy_attach()Florian Fainelli1-1/+1
We have no in-tree users, also update the sfp-phylink.rst documentation to indicate that phy_attach_direct() is used instead of of_phy_attach(). Signed-off-by: Florian Fainelli <f.fainelli@gmail.com> Reviewed-by: Andrew Lunn <andrew@lunn.ch> Signed-off-by: David S. Miller <davem@davemloft.net>
2020-03-03doc: sfp-phylink: correct code indentationRussell King1-16/+16
Using vim to edit the phylink documentation reveals some mistakes due to the "invisible" pythonesque white space indentation that can't be seen with other editors. Fix it. Signed-off-by: Russell King <rmk+kernel@armlinux.org.uk> Signed-off-by: David S. Miller <davem@davemloft.net>
2020-02-27net: phylink: propagate resolved link config via mac_link_up()Russell King1-3/+14
Propagate the resolved link parameters via the mac_link_up() call for MACs that do not automatically track their PCS state. We propagate the link parameters via function arguments so that inappropriate members of struct phylink_link_state can't be accessed, and creating a new structure just for this adds needless complexity to the API.

2020-01-05net: phylink: add support for polling MAC PCSVladimir Oltean1-1/+2
Some MAC PCS blocks are unable to provide interrupts when their status changes. As we already have support in phylink for polling status, use this to provide a hook for MACs to enable polling mode. The patch idea was picked up from Russell King's suggestion on the macb phylink patch thread here [0] but the implementation was changed. Instead of introducing a new phylink_start_poll() function, which would make the implementation cumbersome for common PHYLINK implementations for multiple types of devices, like DSA, just add a boolean property to the phylink_config structure, which is just as backwards-compatible. https://lkml.org/lkml/2019/12/16/603 Suggested-by: Russell King <rmk+kernel@armlinux.org.uk> Signed-off-by: Vladimir Oltean <vladimir.oltean@nxp.com> Signed-off-by: David S.

2019-09-16net: phylink: clarify where phylink should be usedRussell King1-1/+2
Update the phylink documentation to make it clear that phylink is designed to be used on the MAC facing side of the link, rather than between a SFP and PHY.

2019-05-29net: phylink: Add struct phylink_config to PHYLINK APIIoana Ciornei1-1/+4
The phylink_config structure will encapsulate a pointer to a struct device and the operation type requested for this instance of PHYLINK. This patch does not make any functional changes, it just transitions the PHYLINK internals and all its users to the new API. A pointer to a phylink_config structure will be passed to phylink_create() instead of the net_device directly. Also, the same phylink_config pointer will be passed back to all phylink_mac_ops callbacks instead of the net_device. Using this mechanism, a PHYLINK user can get the original net_device using a structure such as 'to_net_dev(config->dev)' or directly the structure containing the phylink_config using a container_of call. At the moment, only the PHYLINK_NETDEV is defined as a valid operation type for PHYLINK. In this mode, a valid reference to a struct device linked to the original net_device should be passed to PHYLINK through the phylink_config structure. This API changes is mainly driven by the necessity of adding a new operation type in PHYLINK that disconnects the phy_device from the net_device and also works when the net_device is lacking.
