Subject: Re: [PATCH net-next] net: phy: phylink: Handle NULL fwnode_handle

From: Florian Fainelli <>
Date: Thu, 14 Dec 2017 15:57:58 -0800

> Unlike the various of_* routines to fetch properties, fwnode_* routines can
> have an early check against a NULL fwnode_handle reference which makes them
> return -EINVAL (see fwnode_call_int_op), thus making it virtually impossible to
> differentiate what type of error is going on.
> Have an early check in phylink_register_sfp() so we can keep proceeding with
> the initialization, there is not much we can do without a valid fwnode_handle
> except return early and treat this similarly to -ENOENT.
> Fixes: 8fa7b9b6af25 ("phylink: convert to fwnode")
