Subject: Re: [PATCH net-next 0/4] net: phy: Add 2.5G/5GBASET PHYs support

> The 802.3bz standard defines 2 modes based on the NBASET alliance work
> that allow to use 2.5Gbps and 5Gbps speeds on Cat 5e, 6 and 7 cables.
> This series adds the necessary infrastructure to handle these modes with
> C45 PHYs. This series was originally part of a bigger one, that has
> seen 2 iterations [1] [2] that added support for these modes on Marvell
> Alaska PHYs.
> Following some discussions with Heiner and Andrew [3], we decided to
> split-out the generic parts so that we can work together on the
> following steps to get these mode fully working with Aquantia and
> Marvell PHYS.
> The first 3 patches are reworking some of the internal network phy
> infrastructure to handle the new modes in a more generic way.
> The 4th patch adds all the C45 register definition and accesses that
> follows the 802.3bz standard to support 2.5GBASET and 5GBASET.
