Add support for the Broadcom ASP 2.0 Ethernet controller which is first
introduced with 72165. This controller features two distinct Ethernet
ports that can be independently operated.

This patch supports:

- Wake-on-LAN using magic packets
- basic ethtool operations (link, counters, message level)
- MAC destination address filtering (promiscuous, ALL_MULTI, etc.)

What is the tx_lock for? netdevs already have a tx lock, unless you
declare the device as lockless.

Will remove.

+static void bcmasp_tx_timeout(struct net_device *dev, unsigned int txqueue)

+ netif_dbg(intf, tx_err, dev, "transmit timeout!\n");
+ netif_trans_update(dev);

If the queue is full xmit will just put it back to sleep.
You want to try to reap completions if anything, no?

I can remove the wake. As you mentioned it won't do anything here. There isn't anything to reap if we are in the timeout condition. If it is some HW stall, we could flush and restart the ring, but if that is the case I rather figure out why the HW is stalling. I think we can leave it as a "tell the user we are stalled" and leave it as that.

+static struct net_device_stats *bcmasp_get_stats(struct net_device *dev)
+ return &dev->stats;

you don't have to do this, core will use device stats if there's no ndo

+ ndev = alloc_etherdev(sizeof(struct bcmasp_intf));
+ if (!dev) {

*blink* condition is typo'ed

Oops. Good catch.


+ dev_warn(dev, "%s: unable to alloc ndev\n", ndev_dn->name);
+ goto err;
+ }
