Subject: [PATCH AUTOSEL 4.19 040/671] net: socionext: Add dummy PHY register read in phy_write()

From: Masahisa Kojima <masahisa.kojima@...aro.org>

[ Upstream commit a3241a91de6429051a211b5ce04d6946157caec7 ]

There is a compatibility issue between RTL8211E implemented
in Developerbox and netsec ethernet controller IP.

Our MDIO controller stops MDC clock right after the write
access, but RTL8211E expects MDC clock must be kept toggling
for several clock cycle with MDIO high before entering
the IDLE state. Without keeping clock after write access,
write access is not correctly handled and register is not
updated.

To meet this requirement, netsec driver needs to issue dummy
read(e.g. read PHYID1(offset 0x2) register) right after write
access, to keep MDC clock.

We think this compatibility issue is a problem specific to
our MDIO controller and RTL8211E.
