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

Hi Andrew,
I summary table 12,13 from RTL8211E-VB datasheet as below.
[Table 12]
RTL8211E-VB Pin       Pin Name
LED0                 PHYAD[0]
LED1                 PHYAD[1]
RXCTL                PHYAD[2]
RXD2                 AN[0]
RXD3                 AN[1]
 -                    Mode
LED2                 RX Delay
RXD1                 TX Delay
RXD0                 SELRGV
To set the CONFIG pins, an external pull-high or pull-low resistor is required.
[Table 13]
PHYAD[2:0]: PHY Address
AN[1:0]: Auto-negotiation Configuration
Mode: Interface Mode select
RX Delay: RGMII Transmit clock timing control
    1: Add 2ns delay to RXC for RXD latching(via 4.7k-ohm to 3.3V)
    0: No delay(via 4.7k-ohm to GND)
TX Delay: RGMII Transmit clock timing control
    1: Add 2ns delay to TXC for TXD latching(via 4.7k-ohm to 3.3V)
    0: No delay(via 4.7k-ohm to GND)
SELRGV: 3.3V or 2.5V RGMII/GMII Selection

These two tables descript how to config it via external pull-high or pull-low resistor on PCB circuit.

Below patch gives table 13 another meaning and maps to register setting.
https://git.kernel.org/pub/scm/linux/kernel/git/netdev/net.git/commit/?id=f81dadbcf7fd06
8:6 = PHY Address
5:4 = Auto-Negotiation
3 = Interface Mode Select
2 = RX Delay
1 = TX Delay
0 = SELRGV
Sync from https://reviews.freebsd.org/D13591

Should I add how to config RX/TX Delay via pull high/down resistor in patch description?

Willy

So these are just how the device is strapped. So lets add that to the description, rather than remove it.

Magic numbers are always bad. Please document what these bits mean.
