Subject: Re: [PATCH v3 1/6] net: phylink: move phylink_pcs_neg_mode() to
 phylink.c

Hi,

You don't need this patch for your series, and you're bypassing my
ability to decide when this patch should be merged (which is not yet,
I want things to remain as-is for another cycle.)

In theory, looking at past history, 6.7 will probably be a LTS kernel,
but until that is known for certain, I don't want to commit to moving
this function in case LTS gets delayed by a cycle.

Please drop it from your series.

Thanks.
