Thanks for your reply.

I don't know whether the commit message affect this patch's result. If so,

I think the commit message in v2 needs more clarification. As follows:

     The function ixp4xx_eth_probe() does not perform sufficient error 
checking

after executing devm_ioremap_resource(), which can result in crashes if 
a critical

error path is encountered.

     Fixes: f458ac479777 ("ARM/net: ixp4xx: Pass ethernet physical base 
as resource").


I'm waiting for you reply actively.

Thanks,

Tang Bin
