    Do you have more details about what goes wrong? Which PHY driver is
    it? What compatibles do you put into DT for the PHY?

    To some extent, the ID is only used to find the driver. A C45 device
    has a lot of ID register, and all of them are used by phy_bus_match()
    to see if a driver matches. So you need to be careful which ID you
    pick, it needs to match the driver.

    It is the driver which decides to use C22 or C45 to talk to the PHY.
    However, we do have:

    static int phy_probe(struct device *dev)
    else if (phydev->is_c45)
    err = genphy_c45_pma_read_abilities(phydev);
    err = genphy_read_abilities(phydev);

    so it could be a C45 PHY probed using an ID does not have
    phydev->is_c45 set, and so it looks in the wrong place for the
    capabilities. Make sure you also have the compatible
    "ethernet-phy-ieee802.3-c45" which i think should cause is_c45 to be

    There is no fundamental restriction that i know of here, it probably
    just needs somebody to debug it and find where it goes wrong.


    int fwnode_mdiobus_register_phy(struct mii_bus *bus,
    struct fwnode_handle *child, u32 addr)
    rc = fwnode_property_match_string(child, "compatible",
    if (rc >= 0)
    is_c45 = true;

    if (is_c45 || fwnode_get_phy_id(child, &phy_id))
    phy = get_phy_device(bus, addr, is_c45);
    phy = phy_device_create(bus, addr, phy_id, 0, NULL);

    So compatible "ethernet-phy-ieee802.3-c45" results in is_c45 being set
    true. The if (is_c45 || is then true, so it does not need to call
    fwnode_get_phy_id(child, &phy_id) so ignores whatever ID is in DT and
    asks the PHY.

    Try this, totally untested:
