Some boards [1] leave the PHYs at an invalid state
during system power-up or reset thus causing unreliability
issues with the PHY which manifests as PHY not being detected
or link not functional. To fix this, these PHYs need to be RESET
via a GPIO connected to the PHY's RESET pin.

Some boards have a single GPIO controlling the PHY RESET pin of all
PHYs on the bus whereas some others have separate GPIOs controlling
individual PHY RESETs.

In both cases, the RESET de-assertion cannot be done in the PHY driver
as the PHY will not probe till its reset is de-asserted.
So do the RESET de-assertion in the MDIO bus driver.

v4:
- use dev_err() instead of pr_err()
- put PHYs back in RESET on failure or mdiobus_unregister()
- typo fixes uS -> us

v3:
- added more information in the DT binding document.

v2:
- add device tree binding document (mdio.txt)
- specify default reset delay in of_mdio.c instead of mdio_bus.c

If this is the reset line of the PHY shouldn't it be a property of the PHY
node rather than of the MDIO controller node (which might have a reset on
its own)?

Hi Lars-Peter

We discussed this when the first proposal was made. There are two
cases, to consider.

1) Here, one GPIO line resets all PHYs on the same MDIO bus. In this
example, two PHYs.

2) There is one GPIO line per PHY. That is a separate case, and as you
say, the reset line should probably be considered a PHY property, not
an MDIO property. However, it can be messy, since in order to probe
the MDIO bus, you probably need to take the PHY out of reset.

Anyway, this patch addresses the first case, so should be accepted. If
anybody wants to address the second case, they are free to do so.

Thanks for the explanation Andrew.

For the second case, even if the RESET GPIO property is specified
in the PHY node, the RESET *will* have to be done by the MDIO bus driver
else the PHY might not be probed at all.

Whether we need additional code to just to make the DT look prettier is
questionable and if required can come as a separate patch.

Well, it's not about prettier vs. uglier, it's about correct vs.
incorrect. The binding document you propose here is correct for a single
reset line controlling all PHYs, and that's why such a reset line needs
to be placed at the MDIO controller level, because it's a property of
such a node.

If you need to support individual reset lines per-PHY, then there should
be some kind of amendment to the Ethernet PHY Device Tree binding
document which specifies optional reset-gpio properties for these nodes.

Until that happens, I think your v4 is good to go.

But the DT binding documentation says something else "List of one or more

I think we all know that that's not going to happen. Once there is a working
kludge there is no incentive to do a proper implementation anymore.

I'm not arguing with that, just that the hardware description should be
truthful to the hardware topology and not to the software topology, i.e. the
implementation details of the Linux kernel in this case. Reset GPIOs are not
the only resource that is connected to the PHY that needs to be enabled
before they can be enumerated. E.g. clocks and regulators fall into the same
realm. And while you might argue that with a on-SoC phy controller node
there wont be any conflicts in regard to the reset-gpios property, this not
so very true for the clocks property.

And MDIO is not really special in this regard, other discoverable buses
(like USB, SDIO, ULPI) have the very same issue. Having a standardized
binding approach where the resources are declared as part as the child child
is preferable in my opinion.

Unfortunately not, once it is merged it can't be changed anymore.

I agree, it should be defined more strictly as:

"One GPIO that controls the reset line of *all* PHYs populated on that
MDIO bus"

If there are separate lines, these automatically become properties of
the PHY nodes.

Agreed, but with the exception of the unfortunate choice of words here
(single vs. multiple) there is not a really a divergence in how the
shared reset line is represented compared to other similar control
busses, is there?

There are no in tree users yet, so let's get the different things fixed
right now.

Good point. I agree now that if PHYs have individual RESET lines, they
should be part of the PHY node.

Patch is already in net-next. How can we get this fixed? Should I send a v5?

Hi Roger

See the followup patch Florian submitted. Send your Reviewed-by: if
you agree with it.
