Subject: [RFC PATCH net-next 9/9] net: dsa: sja1105: Fix broken fixed-link
 interfaces on user ports

From: Vladimir Oltean <>

PHYLIB and PHYLINK handle fixed-link interfaces differently. PHYLIB
wraps them in a software PHY ("pseudo fixed link") phydev construct such
that .adjust_link driver callbacks see an unified API. Whereas PHYLINK
simply creates a phylink_link_state structure and passes it to

At the time the driver was introduced, DSA was using PHYLIB for the
CPU/cascade ports (the ones with no net devices) and PHYLINK for
everything else.

As explained below:

commit aab9c4067d2389d0adfc9c53806437df7b0fe3d5
Author: Florian Fainelli <>
Date:   Thu May 10 13:17:36 2018 -0700

  net: dsa: Plug in PHYLINK support

  Drivers that utilize fixed links for user-facing ports (e.g: bcm_sf2)
  will need to implement phylink_mac_ops from now on to preserve
  functionality, since PHYLINK *does not* create a phy_device instance
  for fixed links.

In the above patch, DSA guards the .phylink_mac_config callback against
a NULL phydev pointer.  Therefore, .adjust_link is not called in case of
a fixed-link user port.

This patch fixes the situation by converting the driver from using
.adjust_link to .phylink_mac_config.  This can be done now in a unified
fashion for both slave and CPU/cascade ports because DSA now uses
PHYLINK for all ports.
