SubjectRe: [PATCH net v2] net: thunderx: start phy before starting autonegotiation
From: Mian Yousaf Kaukab <>
Date: Thu, 5 Dec 2019 10:41:16 +0100

> Since commit 2b3e88ea6528 ("net: phy: improve phy state checking")
> phy_start_aneg() expects phy state to be >= PHY_UP. Call phy_start()
> before calling phy_start_aneg() during probe so that autonegotiation
> is initiated.
> As phy_start() takes care of calling phy_start_aneg(), drop the explicit
> call to phy_start_aneg().
> Network fails without this patch on Octeon TX.
