Subject: [RFC] ARM: dts: imx53-qsb-common: fix FEC pinmux config

From: Patrick Bruenn <>

The pinmux configuration in device tree is different from manual
muxing in <u-boot>/board/freescale/mx53loco/mx53loco.c
It seems the device tree configuration is never used by any kernel
driver and the correct setting, preconfigured by u-boot, was never
overwritten. So this issue never showed up anywhere.

I stumbled upon this difference, while adding the imx53 based CX9020
Embedded PC to u-boot bootloader. "New" boards are encouraged to use
device tree for pinmuxing in u-boot, so I tried to reuse
imx53-qsb-common.dtsi for that. That failed with a high packet loss on
the fec_mxc device. With the attached patch that device tree based
pinmuxing seems successful in u-boot. My suggestion is to apply it to
imx53-qsb-common.dtsi, too. That will help other "late adopters" and
prevent similar issues, in case any kernel driver starts using this
pinmux configurations.
