So, the TC_SETUP_QDISC_MQPRIO is really not required here, and mqprio qdisc is
not used. Then why is it here, should be placed in separate patch at least.

But even the comb mqprio qdisc and taprio qdisc are used together then taprio
requires hw offload also. I'm Ok to add it later to taprio, and I'm asking
about it because I need it also, what ever way it could be added.

Not clear how you combined mqprio qdisc and taprio now to get it working
From this command:

tc qdisc replace dev eth0 parent root handle 100 taprio num_tc 8 map 0 1 2 3 4
5 6 7 queues 1@0 1@1 1@2 1@3 1@4 1@5 1@6 1@7 base-time 01 sched-entry S 02
300000 flags 0x2

I can conclude that some default h/w mapping (one to one) were used and no need
to use mqprio qdisc, the command above is enough.

Is it true?
Then move it to spearate patch please as it's not taprio related yet.

From the code above (duplicate for convenience):
if (admin_conf->enable) {
enetc_wr(&priv->si->hw,
ENETC_QBV_PTGCR_OFFSET,
temp & (~ENETC_QBV_TGE));
usleep_range(10, 20);
enetc_wr(&priv->si->hw,
ENETC_QBV_PTGCR_OFFSET,
temp | ENETC_QBV_TGE);
} else {
enetc_wr(&priv->si->hw,
ENETC_QBV_PTGCR_OFFSET,
temp & (~ENETC_QBV_TGE));
return 0;
}
I see that's not true, as Simon noted, you have same command:

enetc_wr(&priv->si->hw, ENETC_QBV_PTGCR_OFFSET, temp & (~ENETC_QBV_TGE));

before enabling and for disabling. I guess it's stop command, that is disable
qbv. So, before enabling new configuration with enetc_setup_tc(), the tario is
inited|cleared|reseted|rebooted|defaulted|offed but not updated. It means no
in-flight capabilities or they are ignored.
JFI, it's possible to do first time:

tc qdisc replace dev eth0 parent root handle 100 taprio num_tc 8 map 0 1 2 3 4
5 6 7 queues 1@0 1@1 1@2 1@3 1@4 1@5 1@6 1@7 base-time 01 sched-entry S 02
300000 flags 0x2
and then:

tc qdisc replace dev eth0 parent root handle 100 taprio base-time 01
sched-entry S 02 200000 flags 0x2
Do it many times, but w/o mqprio configuration.

So, this function must return error if it cannot be done, as above commands
suppose that configuration can be updated in runtime, that is, set ADMIN cycle
while OPER cycle is still active for some time and not broken like it's done
now. If it can be achieved then no need to do
enetc_wr(&priv->si->hw, ENETC_QBV_PTGCR_OFFSET, temp & (~ENETC_QBV_TGE));
when admin_conf->enable.

So or return error, or do it appropriately.

I mean +1 schedule to finalize the cycle with closed gates if last schedule
has provided time interval. If I set couple schedules, with intervals, and cycle
time more then those schedules consume, then I suppose the gates closed for the
rest time of cycle, probably.

Example:

sched1 ----> shced2 ----> time w/o scheds -> cycle end
gate 1 gate 2 no gates
But if shced2 is last one then gate 2 is opened till the end of cycle.
So, to close gate one more shched is needed with closed gates to finalize it.
Or it's supposed that gate2 is opened till the end of cycle,
How is it in you case. Or this is can be provided by configuration from tc?

It's question not statement. Just though. Anyway i'll verify later it can be
done with tc and how it's done in sw version, just interesting how your h/w
works.
