SubjectRe: [PATCH V8 12/13] ptp: Added a clock driver for the IXP46x.
Krzysztof,

Thanks for your review. I have some responses, below.

But before that, I have a big favor to ask you. Can you please look at
the TODO in my patch and give me a hint? I don't know how to relate
the port instance (NPE A,B,C) to the two time stamping channels.

Okay, I'll change that.

It is a NOOP in that case.

The time stamp code clones the skb, but the LE version frees the skb
too early. Perhaps we can move that dev_kfree_skb(skb) in the LE case
to be the last statement in eth_xmit(). What do you think?

It won't hurt to init the BPF unconditionally. The important bits are
checked with cpu_is_ixp46x().

IIRC, it does not work on 43x.

I don't know about 455 and 460, but I can find out...

Do you mean, you don't like the constant on the left hand side?

Is that prohibited by CodingStyle or similar?

I got into the habit of writing it that way to prevent a typo like:

if (irq = NO_IRQ)

Well, I have had the experience back in 2.4 days of having my drivers
ruined by the changing IO macros in the kernel. The wrappers are
supposed to help if that ever happens again. Seeing *two* leading
underscores in the macro names certainly makes me nervous.

Thanks again,

Richard
