Subject[PATCH] ARM: dts: imx6dl: SolidRun: add phy node with 100Mb/s max-speed
Cubox-i Solo/DualLite carrier board has 100Mb/s magnetics while the
Atheros AR8035 PHY on the MicroSoM v1.3 CPU module is a 1GbE PHY device.

Since commit 5502b218e001 ("net: phy: use phy_resolve_aneg_linkmode in
genphy_read_status") ethernet is broken on Cubox-i Solo/DualLite devices.

This adds a phy node to the MicroSoM DTS and a 100Mb/s max-speed limit
to the Cubox-i Solo/DualLite carrier DTS.

Signed-off-by: tinywrkb <>
This patch fixes ethernet on my Cubox-i2-300-D which is limited to 100Mb/s,
afaik due to the carrier board magnetics, and was since commit 5502b218e001
("net: phy: use phy_resolve_aneg_linkmode in genphy_read_status")

The AR8035 PHY on the CPU module reports to the driver as 1GbE capable
via MII_BSMR's BMSR_ESTATEN status bit, the auto-negotiation sets the
speed at 1GbE while the carrier board can't support it.
Same behavior with the generic phy_device and the at803x drivers.

While the PHY is on the CPU module board I added the max-speed limit to
the cubox-i carrier DTS as I suspect that if the Solo or DualLite v1.3
MicroSoM will be connected to a 1GbE capable carrier board then it would
work correctly with 1GbE.

I can confirm that this commit doesn't break networking on the my
Cubox-i4Pro Quad (i4P-300-D) with it's 1GbE capable carrier board, and
was tested separately with the generic phy_device and at803x drivers.
