Hi Nathan

I think i'm missing something in this explanation:

smi.c says:

/* The switch ADDR[4:1] configuration pins define the chip SMI device address
* (ADDR[0] is always zero, thus only even SMI addresses can be strapped).
* When ADDR is all zero, the chip uses Single-chip Addressing Mode, assuming it
* is the only device connected to the SMI master. In this mode it responds to
* all 32 possible SMI addresses, and thus maps directly the internal devices.
* When ADDR is non-zero, the chip uses Multi-chip Addressing Mode, allowing
* multiple devices to share the SMI interface. In this mode it responds to only
* 2 registers, used to indirectly access the internal SMI devices.
* Some chips use a different scheme: Only the ADDR4 pin is used for
* configuration, and the device responds to 16 of the 32 SMI
* addresses, allowing two to coexist on the same SMI interface.

So if ADDR = 0, it takes up the whole bus. And in this case reg = 0.
If ADDR != 0, it is in multi chip mode, and DT reg = ADDR.

int mv88e6xxx_smi_init(struct mv88e6xxx_chip *chip,
struct mii_bus *bus, int sw_addr)
if (chip->info->dual_chip)
chip->smi_ops = &mv88e6xxx_smi_dual_direct_ops;
else if (sw_addr == 0)
chip->smi_ops = &mv88e6xxx_smi_direct_ops;
else if (chip->info->multi_chip)
chip->smi_ops = &mv88e6xxx_smi_indirect_ops;
return -EINVAL;

This seems to implement what is above. smi_direct_ops == whole bus,
smi_indirect_ops == multi-chip mode.

In what situation do you see this not working? What device are you
using, what does you DT look like, and what at the ADDR value?
