Hi Roelof

The whole point for fixed link is that it looks like a PHY. You should
not need to care if it is a real PHY or a fixed link.

Why does the MAC care about autoneg? In general, all the MAC needs to
know is the speed and duplex.

The current code is unusual, in that it uses
phy_ethtool_get_link_ksettings(). That should do the right thing with
a fixed-link PHY, although i don't know if anybody uses it like
this. So in theory, the current code should take care of duplex, flow
control, and speed for you. Just watch out for bug/missing features in
fixed link.

It is normal to do of_get_phy_mode when connecting to the PHY, and
store the value in the private structure. This is also not specific to
fixed link.

There is also a helper you can use phy_interface_mode_is_rgmii().

netdev uses reverse christmas tree, meaning the lines should be
sorted, longest first, getting shorter.

This is something which is useful during debug. But once it works can
be removed.

I don't understand this comment.
