[PATCH v3 0/2] ethtool: implement Energy Detect Powerdown support via phy-tunable
From: Alexandru Ardelean
Date: Mon Sep 09 2019 - 09:13:33 EST
This changeset proposes a new control for PHY tunable to control Energy
Detect Power Down.
The `phy_tunable_id` has been named `ETHTOOL_PHY_EDPD` since it looks like
this feature is common across other PHYs (like EEE), and defining
`ETHTOOL_PHY_ENERGY_DETECT_POWER_DOWN` seems too long.
The way EDPD works, is that the RX block is put to a lower power mode,
except for link-pulse detection circuits. The TX block is also put to low
power mode, but the PHY wakes-up periodically to send link pulses, to avoid
lock-ups in case the other side is also in EDPD mode.
Currently, there are 2 PHY drivers that look like they could use this new
PHY tunable feature: the `adin` && `micrel` PHYs.
This series updates only the `adin` PHY driver to support this new feature,
as this chip has been tested. A change for `micrel` can be proposed after a
discussion of the PHY-tunable API is resolved.

Changelog v2 -> v3:
* implement Andrew's review comments:
1. for patch `ethtool: implement Energy Detect Powerdown support via
- ETHTOOL_PHY_EDPD_DFLT_TX_INTERVAL == 0xffff
- ETHTOOL_PHY_EDPD_NO_TX == 0xfffe
- added comment in include/uapi/linux/ethtool.h
2. for patch `net: phy: adin: implement Energy Detect Powerdown mode via
- added comments about interval & units for the ADIN PHY
- in `adin_set_edpd()`: add a switch statement of all the valid values
- in `adin_get_edpd()`: return `ETHTOOL_PHY_EDPD_DFLT_TX_INTERVAL`
since the PHY only supports a single TX-interval value (1 second)
Changelog v1 -> v2:
* initial series was made up of 2 sub-series: 1 for kernel & 1 for ethtool
in userspace; v2 contains only the kernel series
