The Ethernet link on an interrupt driven PHY was not coming up if the Ethernet
cable was plugged before the Ethernet interface was brought up.

The patch trigger PHY state machine to update link state if PHY was requested to
do auto-negotiation and auto-negotiation complete flag already set.

During power-up cycle the PHY do auto-negotiation, generate interrupt and set
auto-negotiation complete flag. Interrupt is handled by PHY state machine but
doesn't update link state because PHY is in PHY_READY state. After some time
MAC bring up, start and request PHY to do auto-negotiation. If there are no new
settings to advertise genphy_config_aneg() doesn't start PHY auto-negotiation.
PHY continue to stay in auto-negotiation complete state and doesn't fire
interrupt. At the same time PHY state machine expect that PHY started
auto-negotiation and is waiting for interrupt from PHY and it won't get it.

Hi, Alexandre!

Just found that you've fixed similar problem for Micrel PHY:
https://git.kernel.org/pub/scm/linux/kernel/git/torvalds/linux.git/commit/?id=99f81afc139c6edd14d77a91ee91685a414a1c66

Could you please test if my patch[1] fix your problem?

As reverting your patch will speedup MAC startup time for boards with Micrel PHY
on 3~5 sec (auto-negotiation time[2]). Could you check that also?

Regards,
Alexander.

I think the following commit broke functionality with interrupt driven PHYs
3c293f4e08b5 ("net: phy: Trigger state machine on state change and not polling.")

Probably this one[1] broke, according to Alexandre’s commit[2].
And it was since Nov 16 2015. But it was hidden by some other commits.

For Roger problem became visible after 3c293f4e08b5 ("net: phy:
Trigger state machine on state change and not polling.»),

For my problem became visible after 529ed1275263 ("net: phy: phy drivers
should not set SUPPORTED_[Asym_]Pause»). As commit 529ed1275263 
removed SUPPORTED_Pause flag from PHY advertising property and
genphy_config_aneg() began to skip PHY auto-negotiation.

Alexander.

So... what are we doing here?

My understanding is that this should fix the same problem that commit
99f81afc139c6edd14d77a91ee91685a414a1c66 ("phy: micrel: Disable auto
negotiation on startup") fixed and that this micrel commit should thus
be reverted to improve MAC startup times which regressed.

Florian, any guidance?

Yes, this should be done.

I aksed Alexandre to check if 99f81afc139c6edd14d77a91ee91685a414a1c66 ("phy: micrel: Disable auto
negotiation on startup») can be reverted, and he answered what it may do that
sometime this/next week.

Yes, it can be safely reverted after Alexander's patch. I had to test on
v4.7 because we are not using interrupts on those boards since v4.8
(another issue to be fixed).

As Florian pointed out, at the time I sent my patch, I didn't have time
to investigate whether this was affecting other phys, see
https://lkml.org/lkml/2016/2/26/766

I can send the revert or you can do it.

Thanks! Can you add the following Fixes tag:

Fixes: 321beec5047a (net: phy: Use interrupts when available in NOLINK
state)

BTW, can you have the netdev patchwork instance automatically accepted
Fixes: tag sent as replies to patches? (just like Acked-by, Reviewed-by
and so on are already accepted)?

I've now tested on linux-next after fixing phy interrupts in the macb
driver and this also fixes the issue I was trying to solve with:
