u-boot with it's 2ns RX delay is the non-working case
only if I manually turn off the 2ns RX delay generated by the PHY in
u-boot (phyreg w 0x1f 0xd08; phyreg w 0x11 0x9; phyreg w 0x15 0x11;
phyreg w 0x1f 0x0; phyreg w 0x0 0x9200) I can get ping/tftpboot to
work

the Android kernel disables the 2ns RX delay on the PHY side (and as
far as I can tell does NOT enable it on the MAC side). with that
Ethernet is working

I need to double-check but if I remember correctly was close between
the first and last one (and I think the first case won)

we have inversion hard-coded to "off". I'm not planning to take this
into consideration unless there's a good reason to do so

I have tested 0x0, 0x3, 0x4 and 0xf
the first three values are working, but 0xf isn't.

I'll try to reach someone at Amlogic to clarify the meaning of these
new register bits.
I guess Florian's patch is a good starting point for what I need -
thanks again for the suggestion Vladimir.


Thank you all!
Best regards,
Martin
