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

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
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
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.
