    drivers: net: stmmac: reworking the PCS code. · 70523e63
    Giuseppe CAVALLARO authored
    The 3.xx and 4.xx synopsys gmacs have a very similar
    PCS embedded module and they share almost the same registers:
    for example:
      AN_Control, AN_Status, AN_Advertisement, AN_Link_Partner_Ability,
      AN_Expansion, TBI_Extended_Status.
    Just the RGMII/SMII Control/Status register differs.
    So This patch aims to reorganize and enhance the PCS support.
    It removes the existent support from the dwmac1000/dwmac4_core.c
    moving basic PCS functions inside a new file called: stmmac_pcs.h.
    The patch also reviews the available APIs to be better shared among
    different hardware and easily enhanced to support new features.
