Subject: Re: [PATCH (net.git) 0/2] stmmac: review and fix the dwmac-sti

From: Giuseppe Cavallaro <>

> This patch is to review the whole glue logic adopted on STi SoCs that
> was bugged.
> In the old glue-logic there was a lot of confusion when setup the
> retiming especially for STiD127 where, for example, the bits 6 and 7
> (in the GMAC  control register) have a different meaning of what is
> used for STiH4xx SoCs. So we cannot adopt the same glue for all these
> SoCs.
> Moreover, GiGa on STiD127 didn't work and, for all the SoCs, the RGMII
> couldn't run when the speed was 10Mbps (because the clock was not properly
> managed).
> Note that the phy clock needs to be provided by the platform as well as
> documented in the related binding file (updated as consequence).
> The old code supported too many configurations never adopted and validated.
> This made the code very complex to maintain and debug in case of issues.
> The patch simplifies all the configurations as commented in the tables
> inside the file and obviously it has been tested on all the boards
> based on the SoCs mentioned.
> With this patch, the dwmac-sti is also ready to support new configurations that
> will be available on next SoC generations.
