Subject: Re: [PATCH net-next 0/8] sfc: remove nic_data usage in common code

From: Edward Cree <>
Date: Mon, 11 May 2020 13:23:55 +0100

> efx->nic_data should only be used from NIC-specific code (i.e. nic_type
>  functions and things they call), in files like ef10[_sriov].c and
>  siena.c.  This series refactors several nic_data usages from common
>  code (mainly in mcdi_filters.c) into nic_type functions, in preparation
>  for the upcoming ef100 driver which will use those functions but have
>  its own struct layout for efx->nic_data distinct from ef10's.
> After this series, one nic_data usage (in ptp.c) remains; it wasn't
>  clear to me how to fix it, and ef100 devices don't yet have PTP support
>  (so the initial ef100 driver will not call that code).

Series applied, thanks.
