SubjectRe: [v4,1/9] net-next: phy: new Asix Electronics PHY driver
From
Date
Hi Andrew,

no objection for you to pick this up as part as a larger cleanup. I've
tried to reconstruct how this happened (i.e. what other phy driver file
I used as a 'template' for asix.c) - all I can say is that the 2.0+
boiler plate text was in my initial commit, and the incorrect SPDX tag
was added in response to checkpath complaints. So 2.0+ would be correct.

Thomas: does that suit your purpose?

Cheers,

    Michael
