Subject: Re: Support for IEEE1588 timestamping in the BCM54210PE PHY using

The BCM54210PE PHY can be found in the Raspberry PI Compute Module 4 and the work has been undertaken by Timebeat.app on behalf of Raspberry PI with help and support from the nice engineers at Broadcom.

Hi Lasse

There are a few process issues you should address.

Please wrap your email at about 80 characters.

Please take a read of

https://www.kernel.org/doc/html/latest/process/submitting-patches.html

and

https://www.kernel.org/doc/html/latest/process/maintainer-netdev.html#netdev-faq

It is a bit of a learning curve getting patches accepted, and you have
to follow the processes defined in these documents.

You will need to split these changes up. defconfg changes go via the
Broadcom maintainers. PHY driver changes go via netdev. You can
initially post them as a series, but in the end you might need to send
them to different people/lists.

How specific is this code to the bcm54210pe? Should it work for any
bcm54xxx PHY? You might want to name this file broadcom_ptp.c if it
will work with any PHY supported by broadcom.c.

Please run your code through ./scripts/checkpatch.pl. You will find
the code has a number of code style issues which need cleaning up.

Don't replace the existing entry, extend it with your new
functionality.
