Hi Sergei,

Thanks for the feedback.

It is consistent with current naming convention used by the driver. NUM_TX_DESC macro is replaced by num_tx_desc and  the below run time decision based on chip type for H/W configuration for Gen2/Gen3 is replaced by info->num_tx_desc.

priv->num_tx_desc = chip_id == RCAR_GEN2 ? NUM_TX_DESC_GEN2 : NUM_TX_DESC_GEN3;

Please let me know, if I am missing anything,

Previously there is a suggestion to change the generic struct ravb_driver_data(which holds driver differences and HW features) with struct ravb_hw_info. 

Regards,
Biju
