Doesn't this stop you from having a board with two PHYs with different layouts? You should be getting this value from the device tree.

Raju: As of now, RGMII Rx clock delay value should be 1.1 nsec as optimized/recommended value. 
We tested on Beaglebone Black with VSC 8531 PHY.
We would like to provide new function to configure correct/require value based on PHY layouts 
alone with other RGMII configuration parameters as part of our next implementation.

Why are you setting all these? This is not normal, if you look at other drivers.

Raju: I would like to update the default values in software data structure (phydev). 
Our PHY is 1G speed support device and RGMII supported device.

What are you locking against?

Raju: VSC 8531 has different PAGEs. Whenever MDC/MDIO access the PHY control registers, 
first set the page number then read/write the register address. Default page should be Page 0.
When I want to access not default page register, I have to lock phy device access and change 
the page number and register access as atomic operation.

Why do you overwrite the error code vsc85xx_phy_page_set gives you?

Raju: initially I would like to create new type of Error code. Then, I decided to use existing one. 
I accept your comment. I will remove the code.

Same here.

Raju: I accept your comment. I will remove the code.

No need to initialise rc.

Raju: I accept your comment. I will remove the code.

> +     rc = vsc85xx_default_config(phydev);

        if (rc)
                return rc;

Or just
        return genphy_config_init(phydev);

Raju: I accept your comment. I will remove the code.

And the purpose of this read is? I assume it clears an outstanding interrupt? If so, shouldn't you do it after disabling interrupts, not before? Otherwise you have a race condition.

Raju: The Interrupt status register is read on clean. When, PHY_INTERRUPT_DISABLE case, 
I should make sure that status should be clear. If I read the Interrupt status registers, it clears all preexisting interrupts.
