SubjectRe: [PATCH net-next v3 2/4] net: mdio: add PTP offset compensation to mdiobus_write_sts
> - take a second "post" system timestamp after the completion

For this hardware, completion is an interrupt, which has a lot of
jitter on it. But this hardware is odd, in that it uses an
interrupt. Every other MDIO bus controller uses polled IO, with an
mdelay(10) or similar between each poll. So the jitter is going to be
much larger.

Even though the FEC is special with its interrupt completion, i would
like to see the solution being reasonably generic so that others can
copy it into other MDIO bus drivers. That is what is nice about taking
the time stamp around the write which triggers the bus transaction. It
is independent of interrupt or polled, and should mean about the same
thing for different vendors hardware.
