SubjectRe: Re: [PATCH v2] net: phy: Add driver for Motorcomm yt8521 gigabit
Date
The poll mode of yt8521 phy is not support utp and fiber at same time, In other
words, only utp or fiber can be connected at one time, and you can change to
fiber or utp at next time. so in poll mode need to do both ( utp and fiber )
operation
