No, I mean here you disable SGMII if we're switching away from SGMII
mode.... (note, this means there is more to come for this sentence)

... and here you enable it for SGMII mode, but only for non-inband
modes.

For inband modes, you do not have any code that enables SGMII mode.
Since the only inband mode you support is SGMII, this is not very
good behaviour.

Why not:

if (change_interface) {
u32 ncfgr;

bp->phy_interface = state->interface;

// We don't support 2.5G modes
gem_writel(bp, NCR, ~GEM_BIT(TWO_PT_FIVE_GIG) &
gem_readl(bp, NCR));

ncfgr = gem_readl(bp, NCFGR);
if (state->interface == PHY_INTERFACE_MODE_SGMII) {
// Enable SGMII mode and PCS
gem_writel(bp, NCFGR, ncfgr | GEM_BIT(SGMIIEN) |
GEM_BIT(PCSSEL));
} else {
// Disable SGMII mode and PCS
gem_writel(bp, NCFGR, ncfgr & ~(GEM_BIT(SGMIIEN) |
GEM_BIT(PCSSEL)));

// Reset PCS
gem_writel(bp, PCS_CTRL, gem_readl(bp, PCS_CTRL) |
GEM_BIT(PCS_CTRL_RST));
}
}

if (!phylink_autoneg_inband(mode) &&
(bp->speed != state->speed || bp->duplex != state->duplex)) {

?

Sorry, this reply doesn't answer my question. I'm not asking about
bp->speed and bp->duplex. I'm asking:

1) why you are initialising bp->phy_interface here
2) you to consider the impact that has on the mac_config() implementation
you are proposing

because I think it's buggy.
