Hi Kedareswara

So looking at the device tree, you have the gmiitorgmii as an mdio
device. It will get probed as an mdio device, and from that you know
the address on the bus. However, your driver does not actually do
this. xilinx_gmii2rgmii.c is just a library of two functions, and does
not use any of this device tree information. You device tree binding
is completely bogus.

What i think is a much more logical structure, and fits the hardware,
which is what DT is all about, is to make your driver an mdio driver.
Also, have a phy-handle pointing to the PHY in the gmii_to_rgmii node.
You then no longer need the exported gmii2rgmii_phyprobe() function.

Next, you want gmiitorgmii driver to register a phy. The MAC driver
can then look this up using phy-handle:

mdio {
#address-cells = <1>;
#size-cells = <0>;

phy: ethernet-phy@0 {
reg = <0>;
};

gmii_to_rgmii: gmii-to-rgmii@8 {
compatible = "xlnx,gmiitorgmii";
reg = <8>;
phy-handle = <&phy>;
};
};

macb0: ethernet@fffc4000 {
compatible = "cdns,at32ap7000-macb";
reg = <0xfffc4000 0x4000>;
interrupts = <21>;
phy-mode = "rmii";
phy-handle = <&gmii_to_rgmii>
local-mac-address = [3a 0e 03 04 05 06];
clock-names = "pclk", "hclk", "tx_clk";
clocks = <&clkc 30>, <&clkc 30>, <&clkc 13>;
ethernet-phy@1 {
reg = <0x1>;
reset-gpios = <&pioE 6 1>;
};
};

This description is the same as the figure in the data sheet. You have
the gmii_to_rgmii which passes through to the real PHY.

The phy device that gmiitorgmii registers needs to pass through all
its operations to the real PHY. The exception is read_status()
function. You want to wrap this, so that after it completes and you
know the speed the PHY is using, you set the same speed in your
gmiitorgmii device.

Everything then becomes transparent. There is no need to change the
MAC driver, and you have a generic solution which will work with any
MAC and PHY.
