SubjectRe: [PATCH net-next] net: dsa: lan9303: Do not disable switch fabric port 0 at .probe
From: Egil Hjelmeland <>

> Make the LAN9303 work when lan9303_probe() is called twice.
> For some unknown reason the LAN9303 switch fail to forward data when switch
> fabric port 0 TX is disabled during probe. (Write of LAN9303_MAC_TX_CFG_0
> in lan9303_disable_processing_port().)
> In that situation the switch fabric seem to receive frames, because the ALR
> is learning addresses. But no frames are transmitted on any of the ports.
> In our system lan9303_probe() is called twice, first time
> dsa_register_switch() return -EPROBE_DEFER. As an experiment, modified the
> code to skip writing LAN9303_MAC_TX_CFG_0, port 0 during the first probe.
> Then the switch works as expected.
> Resolve the problem by not calling lan9303_disable_processing_port() on
> port 0 during probe. Ports 1 and 2 are still disabled.
> Although unsatisfying that the exact failure mechanism is not known,
> the patch should not cause any harm.
