Subject: [PATCH RESEND 0/9 net-next] net: of_phy_connect_fixed_link removal

Hi all,

This patch set removes of_phy_connect_fixed_link() from the tree now that
we have a better solution for dealing with fixed PHY (emulated PHY) devices
for drivers that require them.

First two patches update the 'fixed-link' Device Tree binding and drivers to
refere to it.

Patches 3 to 7 update the in-tree network drivers that use

Patch 8 removes of_phy_connect_fixed_link

Patch 9 removes the PowerPC code that parsed the 'fixed-link' property.

Patch 9 can be merged via the net-next tree if the PowerPC folks ack it,
but it really has to be merged after the first 8 patches in order to avoid

Florian Fainelli (9):
  Documentation: devicetree: add old and deprecated 'fixed-link'
  Documentation: devicetree: net: refer to fixed-link.txt
  net: bcmgenet: use the new fixed PHY helpers
  net: systemport: use the new fixed PHY helpers
  fs_enet: use the new fixed PHY helpers
  gianfar: use the new fixed PHY helpers
  ucc_geth: use the new fixed PHY helpers
  of: mdio: remove of_phy_connect_fixed_link
  powerpc/fsl: fsl_soc: remove 'fixed-link' parsing code
