Backplane KR driver allocates memory for structure backplane_phy_info
which is saved in phydev->priv. After all this is the purpose of priv
according to its description in phy.h: <<private data pointer For use
by PHYs to maintain extra state>>. Here the priv is used to maintain
extra state needed for backplane. This way the backplane specific data
becomes available for all PHY callbacks (defined in struct phy_driver)
that receive a pointer to phy_device structure. This initial version
doesn't include accumulating statistics counters but we have in plan
to add these in future versions. The counters will be kept in specific
structures as members of the main backplane data mentioned above
and entire support will be integrated with ethtool.

Hi Florinel

And what about hwmon, or anything else which a driver needs memory
for?

As far as i see it, we have two bodies of code here. There is a set of
helpers which implement most of the backplane functionality. And then
there is an example driver for your hardware. In the future we expect
other drivers to be added for other vendors hardware.

phydev->priv is for the driver. helpers should not assume they have
complete control over it.

Anyway, this may be a mute point. Lets first solve the problem of how
a PCS is represented.

  Andrew

Hi Andrew,

Backplane driver was designed as a generic backplane driver over
the PHY Abstraction Layer, containing standard implementations over
which several specific devices can be added.
(please see the diagram existent in chapter: Ethernet Backplane support
architecture, in the Documentation/networking/backplane.rst)
So according to this design, the backplane driver can use the priv pointer
provided by the layer below which is the PHY to be used as extra state
by the next upper layer which is generic backplane. On the same concept
we can provide another priv pointer in backplane main structure which is
equivalent to phy_device to be used by the specific backplane drivers on
the upper layer.
Actually for this reason, in v2 which I am currently working, I already
renamed the structure 'backplane_phy_info' to 'backplane_device'

Thank you,
Florin.

Hi Florian,
I need these wrappers in generic code in order to automatically assign the proper
I/O accessor in the following structure according to endianness specified in DT.

/* Endianness specific memory I/O */
struct mem_io {
	u32 (*read32)(void __iomem *addr);
	void (*write32)(u32 value, void __iomem *addr);
};

And then the usage is straightforward in device specific code:
io.read32(&reg_base->tcsr3) ...
io.write32((io.read32(&reg_base->tcsr1) ... 

without the need to check endianness at each call and select which read/write function to use.
This is done in order to reduce the overall number of LOC (lines of code).

Florin.

Where they are IEEE 802.3 standard registers, just use the standard
definitions, do not indirect.

That's an entirely false argument.  If something is going to be
non-standard, why do you think that the only thing they'll do is
have non-standard register offsets?  Wouldn't they also have
non-standard register contents as well - and if they do, your
"flexible" model will no longer work there.

This seems to me to be a classic case of over-design.

We have seem some PHYs with multiple different PHY blocks within the
clause 45 space, but these are merely at offsets and follow the
standard IEEE 802.3 register sets at various offsets.  The minimum
that would be required in that case would be to carry a single register
offset - but there is no point until we encounter a PHY that actually
requires that for this support.

Less readale. MDIO_STAT1 is well known. What does
bp_dev.mdio.an_status mean?

In general, core code should be KISS, and assume everything follows
the standard. We don't want to scatter workarounds for non-conformant
hardware in core code. Such workarounds should be in the drivers where
they are hidden away.

Please drop this, and use the #defines directly.

This could be changed to use directly the MDIO_STAT1 in order to read
AN status (and use MDIO_CTRL1 for writing the control register) but this
is more flexible and more readable since we defined the structure
kr_mdio_info that contains all registers offsets required by backplane
driver like: LT(link training) registers, AN registers, PMD registers.
So we wanted to put all these together to be clear that all these
offsets are essential for backplane driver and they can be setup
automatically by calling the function: backplane_setup_mdio_c45.

+ void backplane_setup_mdio_c45(struct backplane_kr_info *bpkr)
+ /* KX/KR AN registers: IEEE802.3 Clause 45 (MMD 7) */
+ bpkr->mdio.an_control = MDIO_CTRL1;
+ bpkr->mdio.an_status = MDIO_STAT1;
+ bpkr->mdio.an_ad_ability_0 = MDIO_PMA_EXTABLE_10GBKR;
+ bpkr->mdio.an_ad_ability_1 = MDIO_PMA_EXTABLE_10GBKR + 1;
+ bpkr->mdio.an_lp_base_page_ability_1 = MDIO_PMA_EXTABLE_10GBKR + 4;

This approach is more flexible because it lets open the possibility for
extension on other non-standard devices (devices non-compliant with
clause 45) to still use this driver for backplane operation.
These non-standard devices will have just to define their particular
registers offsets in structure kr_mdio_info and then the rest of the driver
can be used without other modifications.

Florin.

This could also use %pV instead of an intermediate buffer.

It's also bad form to use macros with required
external variables.

This abstraction makes no sense whatsoever, you already have
io{read,write}32{be,} to deal with the correct endian, and you can use
the standard Device Tree properties 'big-endian', 'little-endian',
'native-endian' to decide which of those of to use. If you need to
introduce a wrapper or indirect function calls to select the correct I/O
accessor, that is fine of course.

I'm not sure it is a good idea to completely take over phydev->priv
like this, in what is just helper code. What if the PHY driver needs
memory of its own? There are a few examples of this already in other
PHY drivers. Could a KR PHY contain a temperature sensor? Could it
contain statistics counters which need accumulating?

Why not just 

val = phy_read_mmd(bpphy, MDIO_MMD_AN, MDIO_CTRL1);

Or is your hardware not actually conformant to the standard?

There has also been a lot of discussion of reading the status twice is
correct or not. Don't you care the link has briefly gone down and up
again?

How does this mutex interact with phydev->lock? It appears both are
trying to do the same thing, serialise access to the PHY hardware.

You are currently modelling this as a phydev. So please just use
phydev_err(), phydev_info(), phydev_dbg() etc.

Also, if you look at other PHY code, struct phy_device * is nearly
always called phydev. Please try to be consistent with the existing
code base.

This is very surprising to me. I've not got my head around the
structure of this code yet, but i'm surprised to see memory mapped
access functions in generic code.

No "why" reply given.

An option is not using reverse christmas tree to both
avoid ordering
constraints and reduce overall line count.

I think this is your own personal taste rather than an
actual valuable addition for subsystem maintenance.

And if this a serious requirement for the subsystem
you oversee, you should add it to something like a
maintainer-entry-profile with a "P:" line in MAINTAINERS.

You have to sometimes put assignments into the code body rather than
the declarations in situations like this.

How (any why) do you suggest the first 2 entries here
should be ordered?

Please use reverse christmas tree ordering for local variables.

Please audit your entire submission for this issue.

Thank you.
