net: mvneta: properly disable HW PHY polling and ensure adjust_link() works
[ Upstream commit 714086029116b6b0a34e67ba1dd2f0d1cf26770c ] This commit fixes a long-standing bug that has been reported by many users: on some Armada 370 platforms, only the network interface that has been used in U-Boot to tftp the kernel works properly in Linux. The other network interfaces can see a 'link up', but are unable to transmit data. The reports were generally made on the Armada 370-based Mirabox, but have also been given on the Armada 370-RD board. The network MAC in the Armada 370/XP (supported by the mvneta driver in Linux) has a functionality that allows it to continuously poll the PHY and directly update the MAC configuration accordingly (speed, duplex, etc.). The very first versions of the driver submitted for review were using this hardware mechanism, but due to this, the driver was not integrated with the kernel phylib. Following reviews, the driver was changed to use the phylib, and therefore a software based polling. In software based polling, Linux regularly talks to the PHY over the MDIO bus, and sees if the link status has changed. If it's the case then the adjust_link() callback of the driver is called to update the MAC configuration accordingly. However, it turns out that the adjust_link() callback was not configuring the hardware in a completely correct way: while it was setting the speed and duplex bits correctly, it wasn't telling the hardware to actually take into account those bits rather than what the hardware-based PHY polling mechanism has concluded. So, in fact the adjust_link() callback was basically a no-op. However, the network happened to be working because on the network interfaces used by U-Boot for tftp on Armada 370 platforms because the hardware PHY polling was enabled by the bootloader, and left enabled by Linux. However, the second network interface not used for tftp (or both network interfaces if the kernel is loaded from USB, NAND or SD card) didn't had the hardware PHY polling enabled. This patch fixes this situation by: (1) Making sure that the hardware PHY polling is disabled by clearing the MVNETA_PHY_POLLING_ENABLE bit in the MVNETA_UNIT_CONTROL register in the driver ->probe() function. (2) Making sure that the duplex and speed selections made by the adjust_link() callback are taken into account by clearing the MVNETA_GMAC_AN_SPEED_EN and MVNETA_GMAC_AN_DUPLEX_EN bits in the MVNETA_GMAC_AUTONEG_CONFIG register. This patch has been tested on Armada 370 Mirabox, and now both network interfaces are usable after boot.
