[PATCH 4.1 158/159] net: dsa: Do not override PHY interface if already configured

From: Greg Kroah-Hartman
Date: Sat Sep 26 2015 - 17:22:10 EST

4.1-stable review patch. If anyone has any objections, please let me know.


From: Florian Fainelli <f.fainelli@xxxxxxxxx>

[ Upstream commit 211c504a444710b1d8ce3431ac19f2578602ca27 ]

In case we need to divert reads/writes using the slave MII bus, we may have
already fetched a valid PHY interface property from Device Tree, and that
mode is used by the PHY driver to make configuration decisions.

If we could not fetch the "phy-mode" property, we will assign p->phy_interface
to PHY_INTERFACE_MODE_NA, such that we can actually check for that condition as
to whether or not we should override the interface value.
