SubjectRe: [PATCH] net: phy: allow scanning busses with missing phys
From: Alexandre Belloni <>
Date: Tue, 24 Apr 2018 18:09:04 +0200

> Some MDIO busses will error out when trying to read a phy address with no

> because __mdiobus_register() is scanning the bus for all possible phys
> addresses.
> In case MII_PHYSID1 returns -EIO or -ENODEV, consider there is no phy at
> this address and set the phy ID to 0xffffffff which is then properly
> handled in get_phy_device().
