Subject[PATCH net-next v3 2/4] net: mdio: add PTP offset compensation to mdiobus_write_sts
Date
From: Hubert Feurstein <h.feurstein@gmail.com>

The slow MDIO access introduces quite a big offset (~13us) to the PTP
system time synchronisation. With this patch the driver has the possibility
to set the correct offset which can then be compensated.
