SubjectRe: [PATCH 04/10] net: stmmac: sunxi platfrom extensions for GMAC in Allwinner A20 SoC's
Hi Chen,
Good to know that Allwinner uses gmac.

On ST SoC, we have very similar requirements, before we merge any of
these changes I think we need to come up with common way to solve both
Allwinner and ST SOCs use cases.

I have already posted few patches on to net-dev
http://lkml.org/lkml/2013/11/12/243 to add Glue driver on top of stmmac
driver.


There are few reasons for the way I have done it.

1> I did not want to modify gmac driver in any sense to when a new SOC
support is added.
2> As the SOC specific glue logic sits on top of standard GMAC IP, it
makes sense to represent it proper harware hierarchy.
3> Did not want to change any generic gmac bindings for SOC specific
stuff as requirements if SOC glue would be very different in each case.

I see issues with this approach, which are addressed in my patches.

Please have a look at the http://lkml.org/lkml/2013/11/12/462 patch on
STi SOC glue, which does implement a very similar glue driver.

Do you see any issues not to do that way?

This is not valid for DT case.
In DT case stmmac maintains its own instance of platform data.

Setting platform data dynamically after probe to a device is not the
right way to do.

This routine would not scale..

stmmac can call init function multiple times, so you would be parsing DT
and also remapping the address multiple times.

This looks exactly like a AUXDATA way of doing things.
Again stmmac driver has to make a copy of this so that I would not get a
same copy for multiple instances.

Personally, I did not want to do this kind of stuff in stmmac, As this
list would keep growing, and this file need to be edited for every new
SOC or every different type of glue logic.

Please let me know what your opnion on doing Allwinner glue driver in
line with http://lkml.org/lkml/2013/11/12/462


Thanks,
srini
