It seemed odd to me at first, but I looked into the datasheet and saw
that multiple writes to the DEV_CLOCK_CFG register in section 5.2.1
https://ww1.microchip.com/downloads/en/DeviceDoc/VMDS-10491.pdf

11. Set up the switch port to the new mode of operation. Keep the reset bits in CLOCK_CFG set.
12. Release the switch port from reset by clearing the reset bits in CLOCK_CFG.

From that it seems like maybe the routine must be two-fold. First a
write to set up the link speed with:
ocelot_port_rmwl(ocelot_port, DEV_CLOCK_CFG_LINK_SPEED(mac_speed),
DEV_CLOCK_CFG_LINK_SPEED_M, DEV_CLK_CFG);
ocelot_port_writel(ocelot_port, DEV_CLOCK_CFG_LINK_SPEED(mac_speed),
DEV_CLK_CFG);

Of note: I'm currently only using the VSC7512 ports 0-3, which don't
have a PCS and therefore don't have the PCS_RATE_ADAPTATION requirement.
So all of my ports should be good test candidates for this.

This makes sense. And I'm hopeful once I get around to the rest of the
device's functionality (external phy / fiber) this level of
understanding will be second nature for me.

I'll make a submission for the PFC with the suggested formats. Thank you
for the feedback.

With CLOCK_CFG, there could be the fix for the duplicate write, and a
second patch to do the reconfigure while the port is still in reset. Or
a single patch that does both, since this behavior seems to have existed
in ocelot_adjust_link.

Thanks as always for your direction.
