This should ideally be the same whether it is a magic packet or ARP on
the version of the IP we use (more details in my comment below).
I simply did not alter the magic packet code for now to avoid breaking
others' flow.

I think a capability flag as part of config structure is better
because this is clearly an SoC related feature and there is no need
to have a devicetree property.

The above would work. But I'd still have to add the RX BD changes
and then stop the phy, disable interrupt etc., for most optimal power
down state - the idea is to keep only is essential to detect a wake event.

Can you please let me know which version you are referring to?
ZynqMP uses the IP version r1p06 or 07.

There is a clear set of rules for ARP wake event to be recognized.

About the DMA activity, it is not explicitly mentioned but we have
observed that the DMA will continue to process incoming packets
and try to write them to the memory and Cadence has confirmed
the same. Later versions of the IP may have some provision to
stop DMA activity on RX channel but unfortunately in this version,
using a dummy RX buffer descriptor is the only way.

I'm looking into your other suggestions.
Thanks, will get back to you.
