Subject[PATCH v2 3/3] net: ethernet: fec: fix refclk enable for SMSC LAN8710/20
Date
From: Richard Leitner <richard.leitner@skidata.com>

Some PHYs (for example the SMSC LAN8710/LAN8720) doesn't allow turning
the refclk on and off again during operation (according to their
datasheet). Nonetheless exactly this behaviour was introduced for power
saving reasons by commit e8fcfcd5684a ("net: fec: optimize the clock management to save power").
Therefore after enabling the refclk we detect if an affected PHY is
attached. If so reset and initialize it again.

For a better understanding here's a outline of the time response of the
clock and reset lines before and after this patch:

v--fec_probe() v--fec_enet_open()

w/ patch eCLK: ___||||||||____________________|||||||||||||||||
w/ patch nRST: ----__-----------------------------__-----------
w/ patch CONF: _______XX_____________________________XX________

^--fec_probe() ^--fec_enet_open()

Generally speaking this issue is only relevant if the ref clk for the
PHY is generated by the SoC. In our specific case (PCB) this problem
does occur at about every 10th to 50th POR of an LAN8710 connected to an
i.MX6DL SoC. The typical symptom of this problem is a "swinging"
ethernet link. Similar issues were reported by users of the NXP forum:
https://community.nxp.com/thread/389902
https://community.nxp.com/message/309354
With this patch applied the issue didn't occur for at least a few
hundret PORs of our board.
