Subject: Re: [PATCH] net: macb: shrink macb_platform_data structure

From: Nicolas Ferre <>
Date: Fri, 3 May 2019 12:36:58 +0200

> This structure was used intensively for machine specific values
> when DT was not used. Since the removal of AVR32 from the kernel,
> this structure is only used for passing clocks from PCI macb wrapper, all
> other fields being 0.
> All other known platforms use DT.
> Remove the leftovers but make sure that PCI macb still works as
> expected by using default values:
> - phydev->irq is set to PHY_POLL by mdiobus_alloc()
> - mii_bus->phy_mask is cleared while allocating it
> - bp->phy_interface is set to PHY_INTERFACE_MODE_MII if mode not found
> in DT.
> This simplifies driver probe path and particularly phy handling.
