Subject: Re: [PATCH net-next] net: phy: Allow building mdio-boardinfo into
 the kernel

From: Florian Fainelli <>
Date: Tue, 28 Mar 2017 12:57:09 -0700

> mdio-boardinfo contains code that is helpful for platforms to register
> specific MDIO bus devices independent of how CONFIG_MDIO_DEVICE or
> CONFIG_PHYLIB will be selected (modular or built-in). In order to make
> that possible, let's do the following:
> - descend into drivers/net/phy/ unconditionally
> - make mdiobus_setup_mdiodev_from_board_info() take a callback argument
>   which allows us not to expose the internal MDIO board info list and
>   mutex, yet maintain the logic within the same file
> - relocate the code that creates a MDIO device into
>   drivers/net/phy/mdio_bus.c
> - build mdio-boardinfo.o into the kernel as soon as MDIO_DEVICE is
>   defined (y or m)
> Fixes: 90eff9096c01 ("net: phy: Allow splitting MDIO bus/device support from PHYs")
> Fixes: 648ea0134069 ("net: phy: Allow pre-declaration of MDIO devices")

Applied, thanks.
