2020-03-03devlink: remove trigger command from devlink-region.rstJacob Keller1-3/+0
The devlink trigger command does not exist. While rewriting the documentation for devlink into the reStructuredText format, documentation for the trigger command was accidentally merged in. This occurred because the author was also working on a potential extension to devlink regions which included this trigger command, and accidentally squashed the documentation incorrectly. Further review eventually settled on using the previously unused "new" command instead of creating a new trigger command. Fix this by removing mention of the trigger command from the documentation.

2020-01-10devlink: convert driver-specific files to reStructuredTextJacob Keller14-69/+221
Several drivers document what parameters they support in a devlink-params-*.txt file. This file is supposed to contain both the list of generic parameters implemented by the driver, as well as a list of driver-specific parameters and their descriptions. It would also be good if the driver documentation included other driver-specific implementations, such as info versions, devlink regions, and so forth. Convert all of these documentation files to reStructuredText, and rename them to just the driver name. Future changes will include other driver-specific implementations. Each file will contain a table for the generic parameters implemented, as well as a separate table for the driver-specific parameters. Future sections such as for devlink info versions will be added to these files. This avoids creating additional devlink-<feature>-<driver> files for each devlink feature, reducing clutter in the documentation folder.

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.

ETHTOOL_MSG_LINKMODES_SET netlink request only triggers the notification if there is a change but the ioctl command handlers do not check if there is an actual change and trigger the notification whenever the commands are executed.
