Subject: Re: [PATCH] net: phy: smsc: reintroduced unconditional soft reset

From: Manfred Schlaegl <>
Date: Mon, 6 Jun 2016 10:47:47 +0200

> We detected some problems using the smsc lan8720a in combination with
> i.MX28 and tracked this down to commit 21009686662f ("net: phy: smsc: move
> smsc_phy_config_init reset part in a soft_reset function")
> With 2100968666 the generic soft reset is replaced by a specific function
> which handles power down state correctly. But additionally the soft reset
> itself got conditional and is therefore also only performed if the phy is
> in power down state.
> This patch keeps the conditional wake up from power down, but
> re-introduces the unconditional soft reset using the generic soft reset
> function.
> It was tested on linux-4.1.25 and linux-4.7.0-rc2.
> Signed-off-by: Manfred Schlaegl <>
