Subject[PATCH] net: dsa: mt7530: fix null pointer dereferencing in port5 setup
The 2nd gmac of mediatek soc ethernet may not be connected to a PHY
and a phy-handle isn't always available.
Unfortunately, mt7530 dsa driver assumes that the 2nd gmac is always
connected to switch port 5 and setup mt7530 according to phy address
of 2nd gmac node, causing null pointer dereferencing when phy-handle
isn't defined in dts.
This commit fix this setup code by checking return value of
of_parse_phandle before using it.

Fixes: 38f790a80560 ("net: dsa: mt7530: Add support for port 5")
Signed-off-by: Chuanhong Guo <>

mt7530 is available as a standalone chip and we should not make it
tightly coupled with a specific type of ethernet dt binding in the
first place.
A proper fix is to replace this port detection logic with a dt
property under mt7530 node, but that's too much for linux-stable.
