Subject: Re: [PATCH] net: sh_eth: fix mdio access in sh_eth_close() for some
 SoCs

Hello!

   It's not "some SoCs", it's only R-Car gen2 and RZ/G1 SoCs.

   Not sure how RMII mode affects the MDIO transfers...

   Ah, I was going to suggest changing the call order... what happens then?

   Should be "RMII mode", n ot just "Mode". We prolly need more detailed explanation...
