Subject: Re: [PATCH] dp83640: Get gpio and master/slave configuration from DT

Can we please keep the module parameters? I have two platforms with
phyters neither of which will ever support DT, namely ixp and m68k,
and I want to run recent kernels on them.

Are module parameters even considered user ABI?

Even if not, still I want to retain the module params until there is
an alternative for non-DT platforms.

What do you mean by "each master"? Do you mean each individual PHY device
or each group of PHYs on the same MDIO bus?

Thanks,
Richard
