Subject: Re: [PATCH net-next 0/4] Add support for slow-to-probe-PHY copper
 SFP modules

From: Russell King - ARM Linux admin <>
Date: Mon, 9 Dec 2019 14:15:25 +0000

> This series, following on from the previous adding SFP+ copper support,
> adds support for a range of Copper SFP modules, made by a variety of
> companies, all of which have a Marvell 88E1111 PHY on them, but take
> far longer than the Marvell spec'd 15ms to start communicating on the
> I2C bus.
> Researching the Champion One 1000SFPT module reveals that TX_DISABLE is
> routed through a MAX1971 switching regulator and reset IC which adds a
> 175ms delay to releasing the 88E1111 reset.
> It is not known whether other modules use a similar setup, but there
> are a range of modules that are slow for the Marvell PHY to appear.
> This patch series adds support for these modules by repeatedly trying
> to probe the PHY for up to 600ms.

Series applied.
