No my Freescale FEC PHY driver is not a module. FEC is a imx28/arm
platform driver or not?

I loaded the DSA as a Kernel module to make sure that the DSA probing
is happening when the switch is really on. I enable the SWITCH ON Pin
on bootup with a systemd started script. Then I write some registers
on the switch with a userspace mii tool. This manually writing of some
switch registers works fine via the MII Bus using ioctl(SIOCGMIIPHY).

But i would like to integrate the switch with a full dsa driver.
currently its failing with dsa_of_probe returns=-19

can you give me a link to this patch?
