SubjectRe: [PATCH v2] lan743x: correctly handle chips with internal PHY
Hi Roelof, great to meet another user of the lan743x !

Is this a commercially available product? I could test this out if it
can be ordered
inexpensively from my location (Canada).

Yes it will work on a PC, because the device doesn't have a devicetree
entry there.
In my case I am running on ARM, and I'm manually creating a devicetree
entry in the fdt, so that the bootloader can assign a mac address to the chip.

I must be one of the first to use this chip on ARM, because I have
encountered 2 or 3 issues with the current driver, which crash the
kernel on ARM.

I'll try to contribute those changes once this fix is accepted and merged.
