Subject: Re: [PATCH 0/6] stmmac: Driver Updates

Hello Deepak

thanks for these patches.
I've just commented the patches #1 #2 #3.

I've found some problem when apply them in git.net.

I'll look at the patches #4 and #5 tomorrow and then I'll give you my
feedback. These have an impact on old driver versions too.

Patch #6, at first glance looks fine to me. I'll give you mu Acked-by as
soon as I complete the review.

Sorry for the delay

Regards
Peppe
