SubjectRe: [PATCH] net: dsa: mt7530: fix null pointer dereferencing in port5 setup
Quoting Chuanhong Guo <gch981213@gmail.com>:

Hi Chuanhong,

> Unfortunately, mt7530 dsa driver assumes that the 2nd gmac is always

MT7530 tries to detect if 2nd GMAC is using a phy with phy-address 0 or 4.
If so, switch port 5 needs to be setup so that PHY 0 or 4 is available
via port 5 of the switch. Any MAC can talk to PHY 0/4 directly via port 5.
This is also explained in the kernel docs mt7530.txt.

May be there are better way to detect that any node is using phy 0/4 of
the switch.

Funny that I never tested this case that 2nd gmac node exits and is disabled
without using port 5.

Thanks for the fix.

Greats,

René
