Hi Dylan,

What are the symptoms of this issue? We are seeing this on our systems:

[29376.090637] WARNING: CPU: 0 PID: 9 at net/sched/sch_generic.c:442
dev_watchdog+0x2f0/0x2f4
[29376.099898] NETDEV WATCHDOG: eth0 (ftgmac100): transmit queue 0 timed out

> Signed-off-by: Dylan Hung <dylan_hung@...eedtech.com>

This fixes support for the ast2600, so we can put:

Fixes: 39bfab8844a0 ("net: ftgmac100: Add support for DT phy-handle property")

Will aspeed issue an updated datasheet with this register documented?
