Hello.

Currently the fixed-link DT binding is pre-configured and
cannot be changed in run-time. This means the cable unplug
events are not being detected, and the link parameters can't
be negotiated.

The following patches are needed when mvneta is used
in fixed-link mode (without MDIO).
They add an API to fixed_phy that allows to update
status, and use that API in the mvneta driver when parsing
the SGMII in-band status.

There is also another implementation that doesn't add any API
and does everything in mvneta driver locally:
https://lkml.org/lkml/2015/3/31/327
I'll let people decide which approach is better.
No strong opinion on my side.

Currently fixed_phy uses a callback to periodically poll the link state.
This patch adds the fixed_phy_update_state() API.
It solves the following problems:
- On link state interrupt, MAC driver can't update status.
Instead it needs to provide the callback to periodically query
the HW about the link state. It is more efficient to update status
after interrupt.
- The callback needs to be unregistered before phy_disconnect(),
or otherwise it will be called with net_dev==NULL. phy_disconnect()
does not have enough info to unregister the callback automatically.
- The callback needs to be registered before of_phy_connect() to
avoid running with outdated state, but of_phy_connect() returns the
phy_device pointer, which is needed to register the callback. Registering
it before of_phy_connect() will therefore require a hack to get the
pointer earlier.

Overall, this addition makes the subsequent patch that implements
SGMII link status for mvneta, much cleaner.

When MDIO bus is unavailable (common setup for SGMII), the in-band
signaling must be used to correctly track link state.
This patch enables the in-band status delivery for link state changes, namely:
- link up/down
- link speed
- duplex full/half
fixed_phy_update_state() is used to update phy status.

Agreed, now that we have that, we should probably just remove the
ability to have a fixed link update callback since it suffers from all
the deficiencies you outlined above, and is creating some overhead by
polling the hardware.

Thanks!

In fact, this can't even be done: registering it before of_phy_connect()
is an asking for troubles with NULL deref.

In fact, there is still a bit of a problem.
You certainly want to set the initial state, so that on of_phy_connect()
time it is already valid. For this I still use of_phy_find_device()...
This, however, differs from registering the callback:
- initial state is set only once; callback should be registered before
_every_ of_phy_connect() (but it can't be registered before because
of the NULL, so only after)
- initial state can be set anywhere anytime, not necessary any near
of_phy_connect().

So the problem is mostly solved, but of_phy_find_device() is still
there. To get rid of this, I guess some addition to of_mdio may be
needed as well. Maybe optionally passing the status directly to
of_phy_connect()? Not sure.
