OK, we should fix that. Removing the above code does work for most of
the configurations, including the double shot MacchiatoBin.

With the above code remove one case did not worked anymore: when the
port is configured as a fixed-link because the SFP cage can't be
described and used (on the 7040-db and 8040-db boards). In such cases
phylink is called, mac_config() is called, but link_up() is never
called. I'm not sure this is actually an issue in phylink, but the PPv2
driver should probably take care of this weird case itself (by calling
explicitly link_up()). What do you think?

OK, that's bad.

OK. Hopefully the fix will drop all use of state->link.


I've made a patch (see below) to stop messing with the carrier link
state in mac_config(), while also fixing the fixed-link handling
directly from within the PPv2 driver. If the patch is OK for you, I'll
sent it upstream to the net tree.

Subject: [PATCH] net: mvpp2: let phylink manage the carrier state

Net drivers using phylink shouldn't mess with the link carrier
themselves and should let phylink manage it. The mvpp2 driver wasn't
following this best practice as the mac_config() function made calls to
change the link carrier state. This led to wrongly reported carrier link
state which, according to Russell, increased a lot the Debian Jessie
boot time as systemd tried to bring up all those interfaces.

This patch fixes this behaviour.

As parts of the driver relied on this misbehaviour from the mac_config()
function, they were fixed as well to call the link_up() function. Also,
the fixed-link configuration relied on the mac_config() function to mess
with the link carrier state. As it does not anymore, if this mode is
used the link_up() function is called explicitly.
