This is now commit bcf3440c6dd78bfe ("net: phy: micrel: add phy-mode
support for the KSZ9031 PHY") in net-next/master.

This triggers on Renesas Salvator-X(S):

    Micrel KSZ9031 Gigabit PHY e6800000.ethernet-ffffffff:00:
*-skew-ps values should be used only with phy-mode = "rgmii"

which uses:

        phy-mode = "rgmii-txid";

and:

        rxc-skew-ps = <1500>;

If I understand Documentation/devicetree/bindings/net/ethernet-controller.yaml
correctly:

      # RX and TX delays are added by the MAC when required
      - rgmii

i.e. any *-skew-ps can be specified.

      # RGMII with internal RX and TX delays provided by the PHY,
      # the MAC should not add the RX or TX delays in this case
      - rgmii-id

i.e. *-skew-ps must not be specified.

      # RGMII with internal RX delay provided by the PHY, the MAC
      # should not add an RX delay in this case
      - rgmii-rxid

i.e. it's still OK to specify tx*-skew-ps values here...

      # RGMII with internal TX delay provided by the PHY, the MAC
      # should not add an TX delay in this case
      - rgmii-txid

... and rx*-skew-ps values here?
Is my understanding correct, and should the check be updated to take into
account rxid and txid?

BTW, the example in Documentation/devicetree/bindings/net/micrel-ksz90x1.txt
still specifies *-skew-ps values with phy-mode = "rgmii-id", so I think
that should be updated, too.

Thanks!
