Henk Stegeman - Feb. 19, 2009, 9:45 a.m.
I must have made a mistake when I tested the previous patch, I
discovered later it still had errors:
- I had accidentally removed the base address in the fec_mpc52xx driver.
- The priv->phydev pointer was sometimes not initialized (NULL) but
still passed by the fec_mpc52xx driver, this pointer is then used
unchecked by the eth_tool_* functions (used by bridging to determine
port priority). As far as I see this depends on whether
mpc52xx_fec_open (or mpc52xx_fec_close) is called which in turn call
mpc52xx_init_phy to initialize priv->phydev. My work around checks the
priv->phydev pointer in the fec_mpc52xx driver and returns -ENODEV to
indicate there's no physical device. Big chance this is not the right
way to handle the problem, but it works, hopefully someone with some
more fundamental Linux network driver experience can pick this up or
give me some hints on this.

At least bridging now works on my board in combination with the
fec_mpc52xx driver.

Grant Likely - March 10, 2009, 5:13 p.m.
Hi Henk,

Acked-by: Grant Likely <grant.likely@secretlab.ca>

Can you please repost with a blurb for the commit description and your
signed-off-by line?  The blub below makes sense in the context of this
mailing list thread, but it won't be very useful for someone looking
at the commit message in git.  Also, your patch is line-wrap damaged
(cut and paste into your mail client doesn't usually work) and has
inconsistent whitespace (run it through scripts/checkpatch.pl).

Jeff, after Henk provides his s-o-b line, do you want to pick it up,
or should I merge it through my mpc52xx powerpc tree (via benh).

Thanks,
g.

Send it to netdev, CC:'d to me, Jeff hasn't been handling networking
driver changes for a while now.

Ah, okay.  I didn't know.  I looked in MAINTAINERS today, and Jeff is
listed there for NETWORK DEVICE DRIVERS.

Henk,

At the very least, I still need a signed-off-by: line from you on this one.
