Ah, interesting.

Yes, I got it off the schematic.

The DPAA changes must be merged before the phy changes. At the moment,
sub-10G ethernet still works on the LS1046ARDB. This is because even though
we program an advertisement of only 10G link modes, the phy by default
ignores the programmed advertisement. But by adding a driver for this phy,
the 10G-only advertisement will take effect and no link will be established.
So the DPAA change must come before the phy change.

Since there is no harm, I will split the DPAA change into its own patch and
place it before this one.

Yes, that is the strategy outlined in the cover letter.
