Hi Sebastian

I understand what you are trying to do, i've got boards which also
have back-to-back PHYs for the CPU port. These boards however have the
strapping correct, so nothing needs doing in software.

But the way you are doing it is wrong. PHY_INTERFACE_MODE_NA means
something else has already setup the interface mode, leave it alone.
PHY_INTERFACE_MODE_INTERNAL means there is some other sort of bus
between the MAC and the PHY than the normal MII.

What you want to say is that there is a PHY on this port, and that you
want to configure it to a given fixed configuration, probably 1000
Full, with auto-neg turned off. This is something completely different
to a fixed phy, which is used when there is no PHY at all.

What state is the PHY in, if you don't have this patch? Is it powered
down?

Andrew
