Subject: RE: [PATCH] net: phy: realtek: fix rtl8211e rx/tx delay config

Hi Serge,
Thanks for your reply. There is a confidential issue that realtek doesn't offer the detail of a full register layout for configuration register. 

The default setting for this configuration register should be 0x8148. Basically, no need to change it. If you need to enable RGMII RX Delay or RGMII TX Delay via register setting, you also need to enable Force Tx RX Delay controlled as well.
13 = force Tx RX Delay controlled by bit12 bit11
12 = Tx Delay
11 = Rx Delay 

Current code in U-boot could change the register value from 0x8148 to 0xb548 (0x8148|0xb400). Bit12 and Bit13 are set, and  RGMII TX delay enabled.
https://elixir.bootlin.com/u-boot/v2020.10-rc4/source/drivers/net/phy/realtek.c
	
I hope this information could help a bit.
B.R.
Willy

Hello Willy,
Thanks for the patch. My comments are below.

I've Cc'ed the U-boot/FreeBSD, who might be also interested in the solution you've provided.

This is a very useful information, but it contradicts a bit to what knowledge we've currently got about that magical register. Current code in U-boot does the delays configuration by means of another bits:
https://elixir.bootlin.com/u-boot/v2020.10-rc4/source/drivers/net/phy/realtek.c

Could you provide a full register layout, so we'd know for sure what that register really does and finally close the question for good?

So, what do BIT(1) and BIT(2) control then? Could you explain?

Here you've removed the register layout description and replaced it with just three bits info. So from now the text above doesn't really corresponds to what follows.

I might have forgotten something, but AFAIR that register bits state mapped well to what was available on the corresponding external pins. So if you've got a sacred knowledge what configs are really hidden behind that register, please open it up. This in-code comment would be a good place to provide the full register description.
