LEROY Christophe - Sept. 24, 2012, 2 p.m.
This patch adds proper handling of the buggy revision A2 of LXT973 phy, adding
precautions linked to ERRATA Item 4:

Revision A2 of LXT973 chip randomly returns the contents of the previous even
register when you read a odd register regularly

Does reading the PHY registers involve bit-banging an MII interface?
If so this code is likely to stall the system for significant
periods (ready phy registers at all can be a problem).

I know some ethernet mac have hardware blocks for reading MII
and even polling one MII register for changes.

Maybe some of this code ought to be using async software
bit-bang - especially when just polling for link status change.
I'm sure it ought to be possible to do one bit-bang action
per clock tick instead of spinning for the required delays.

Not sure I understand what you mean. We have been using this code 
without any problem for about 2 years on our Hardware.
It does almost same as genphy_read_status() except that it also reads 
the BMCR register (which is the register preceeding the BMSR) in order 
to detect the unlikely happening of the bug reported by the ERRATA. In 
case it happens (which is really seldom), it does a re-read.
We are not spinning on any delays here.

I like this way of matching the A2 chips much better than what you had
before. But are you sure this will work correctly?

What do A3 chips have in the last nibble of phy_id?

Apparently it does.

A2 chip has phy_id 0x00137a10
A3 chip has phy_id 0x00137a11
