Yes, it looks that way to me.  The DT description for the port is:

                        port@5 {
                                reg = <5>;
                                label = "cpu";
                                ethernet = <&cp1_eth2>;
                                phy-mode = "2500base-x";
                                managed = "in-band-status";
                        };

So, of_phy_is_fixed_link() will return true, but as far as phylink is
concerned, it's in in-band status mode rather than fixed-link mode.
Hmm.

Digging out the serdes PHY status on my GT8k (C45 address 21, PHYXS):

 2000  1140 0145 0141 0c00 00a0 0000 0004 2001
 2008  0000 0000 0000 0000 0000 0000 0000 8000
...
 a000  2000 0600 0000 a420 5100 2000 0000 0000

Remembering that it's a C22 register layout for this PHY starting at
0x2000, with the Marvell status register at 0xa003.

BMCR = 0x1140 = BMCR_ANENABLE | BMCR_FULLDPLX | BMCR_SPEED1000
BMSR = 0x0145 = BMSR_ESTATEN | reserved_bit(6) | BMSR_LSTATUS | BMSR_ERCAP
Status = 0xa420 = MV88E6390_SGMII_PHY_STATUS_SPEED_1000 |
		  MV88E6390_SGMII_PHY_STATUS_DUPLEX_FULL |
		  MV88E6390_SGMII_PHY_STATUS_LINK |
		  bit(5)

Note that MV88E6390_SGMII_PHY_STATUS_SPD_DPL_VALID is missing, so the
results of the speed, duplex and pause are not valid.  The only reason
the link is up is because we're forcing it up.

The other end of the link is not allowing the BASE-X configuration to
complete, which is not that surprising when you notice it is:

&cp1_eth2 {
        status = "okay";
        phy-mode = "2500base-x";
        phys = <&cp1_comphy5 2>;
        fixed-link {
                speed = <2500>;
                full-duplex;
        };
};

in fixed-link mode rather than in-band mode.

So, each end of the link has been configured differently in DT.  One
end has been told to use in-band AN, whereas the other end has been
told not to, which means when we start interpreting in-band correctly
in DSA, this dis-similar setup breaks.

Both ends really need to agree, and I'd suggest cp1_eth2 needs to drop
the fixed-link stanza and instead use ``managed = "in-band";'' to be
in agreement with the configuration at the switch.

Martin, can you modify
arch/arm64/boot/dts/marvell/armada-8040-clearfog-gt-8k.dts to test
that please?

Thanks.
