SubjectRe: [PATCH RFC] Update documentation for KSZ DSA drivers so that new drivers can be added
Hi!

> There will be 5 drivers to support these devices:

> ksz9477.c - KSZ9893/KSZ9897/KSZ9567/KSZ9566/KSZ9477
> ksz8795.c - KSZ8795/KSZ8795/KSZ8765
> ksz8895.c - KSZ8895/KSZ8864

Could we see the 8895 driver, please?

Kernel is not a place to play marketing games, and people reading the
kernel sources are not targets of your marketing department.

Please let us just see the underlying hardware, as is.
