Subject: Re: [PATCH RFT 1/2] phylib: add device reset GPIO support

Hello Sergei,

[we already talked about this patch in #armlinux, I'm now just
forwarding my comments on the list. Background was that I sent an easier
and less complete patch with the same idea. See
http://patchwork.ozlabs.org/patch/621418/]

[added Linus Walleij to Cc, there is a question for you/him below]

This is great.

My patch breaks this driver. I wasn't aware of it.

Before v4.6-rc1~108^2~91 it was not necessary to check for the first
parameter being non-NULL before calling gpiod_set_value. Linus, did you
change this on purpose?

I wonder if it's safe to do this in general. What if ->probe does
something with the phy that is lost by resetting but that is relied on
later?

This is wrong I think. You must only ignore -ENODEV, all other error
codes should be passed to the caller. (I see that's not trivial because
of_mdiobus_register_phy returns void.)

In my patch I used devm_gpiod_get_array which has the nice property that
I can already pass GPIOD_OUT_LOW in flags. Also this binds the lifetime
of the gpio to the device which is nice and IMHO the right direction for
the phylib (i.e. better embracing of the device model).

This cannot be used here easily however because there is no struct
device yet and this is only created after the phy id is determined. The
phy id is either read from the device tree or must be read from the phy
which might fail if reset is not deasserted.

Principally there is no reason however that the phy_id must be known
before the struct device is created however.

Best regards
Uwe
