SubjectRe: [PATCH] add virtual PHY for PHY-less devices
Date
Hi Florian

The fixed-PHY driver looks a little bit hardly tunable, please look at
https://www.lkml.org/lkml/2020/9/17/1424
This is not my idea. This is a request of HW team, and I thnk it will be
useful for someone else. But I'll try to combine fixed-phy with virtual-PHY
tomorrow. It just to rearrange some lines in lan743x_phy_open.
