SubjectRe: [PATCH 1/3] net: ethernet: add support for PCS and 2.5G speed
Date
$subject should begin with "net: macb: "

Parshuram,

Sorry but NACK on the series.

David,

This patch series seem pretty intrusive, so I would like that you wait
for my explicit ACK before applying even next versions of it.

More comments below...

Read the coding style documentation, everything is well explained there.

We use (ID >= 0x2) and only 10/100 mode on sama5d4/sama5d2 for more than
5 years, as seen in their respective struct macb_config, weren't you aware?

I agree with Florian, and what you modify makes me feel that the rest of
the patch might break my use of the Cadence IP in my products. That's
not a good sign, to say the least.

I'm expecting that Cadence don't break software used by their customers
on products already deployed on the field.
For next series, I would like that you report that you actually tested
your changes on older IP revisions and that non-regression tests are
passed successfully for some of the long time users of this IP (namely
Microchip/Atmel and Xilinx products).
