Hi Florian

Err, i don't think i agree. But maybe i'm missunderstanding.

We have two back-to-back PHYs. I would expect the i210 MAC to have a
phy-handle pointing it its PHY. The CPU port would then point to the
internal switch PHY.

Or are you suggesting the i210 has two phy-handles, its own and the
switches?
