Hi Maxime,

Andrew and me are working on Aquantia PHY support and he handed over
to me a patch series which includes parts of the first version of your
series. Having said that I'm especially interested in your patches
5 and 6. Because your series is somewhat bigger and there are a few
review comments, preparing the next round may take time.

I'd propose that you extract generic patches being submission-ready
and split the patch series into two. I think the following patches
would be candidates for the first series: 2, 3, 5, 6
(provided they have no dependency on the other patches)
Based on that both of us can go on with our work.

Andrew, what do you think?
