2008-10-13dsa: fix compile bug on s390Heiko Carstens1-1/+1
git commit 45cec1bac0719c904bb5f4405c2937f7e715888c "dsa: Need to select PHYLIB." causes this build bug on s390: drivers/built-in.o: In function `phy_stop_interrupts': /home/heicarst/linux-2.6/drivers/net/phy/phy.c:631: undefined reference to `free_irq' /home/heicarst/linux-2.6/drivers/net/phy/phy.c:646: undefined reference to `enable_irq' drivers/built-in.o: In function `phy_start_interrupts': /home/heicarst/linux-2.6/drivers/net/phy/phy.c:601: undefined reference to `request_irq' drivers/built-in.o: In function `phy_interrupt': /home/heicarst/linux-2.6/drivers/net/phy/phy.c:528: undefined reference to `disable_irq_nosync' drivers/built-in.o: In function `phy_change': /home/heicarst/linux-2.6/drivers/net/phy/phy.c:674: undefined reference to `enable_irq' /home/heicarst/linux-2.6/drivers/net/phy/phy.c:692: undefined reference to `disable_irq' PHYLIB has alread a depend on !S390, however select PHYLIB at DSA overrides that unfortunately. So add a depend on !S390 to DSA as well. Signed-off-by: Heiko Carstens <heiko.carstens@de.ibm.com> Signed-off-by: David S. Miller <davem@davemloft.net>

2008-10-08dsa: add support for the Marvell 88E6060 switch chipLennert Buytenhek3-0/+295
Add support for the Marvell 88E6060 switch chip. This chip only supports the Header and Trailer tagging formats, and we use it in Trailer mode since that mode is slightly easier to handle than Header mode.

2008-10-08dsa: add support for Trailer tagging formatLennert Buytenhek6-0/+150
This adds support for the Trailer switch tagging format. This is another tagging that doesn't explicitly mark tagged packets with a distinct ethertype, so that we need to add a similar hack in the receive path as for the Original DSA tagging format.

2008-10-08dsa: add support for the Marvell 88E6131 switch chipLennert Buytenhek5-0/+555
Add support for the Marvell 88E6131 switch chip. This chip only supports the original (ethertype-less) DSA tagging format. On the 88E6131, there is a PHY Polling Unit (PPU) which has exclusive access to each of the PHYs's MII management registers. If we want to talk to the PHYs from software, we have to disable the PPU and wait for it to complete its current transaction before we can do so, and we need to re-enable the PPU afterwards to make sure that the switch will notice changes in link state and speed on the individual ports as they occur. Since disabling the PPU is rather slow, and since MII management accesses are typically done in bursts, this patch keeps the PPU disabled for 10ms after a software access completes. This makes handling the PPU slightly more complex, but speeds up something like running ethtool on one of the switch slave interfaces from ~300ms to ~30ms on typical hardware.

2008-10-08dsa: add support for original DSA tagging formatLennert Buytenhek7-7/+234
Most of the DSA switches currently in the field do not support the Ethertype DSA tagging format that one of the previous patches added support for, but only the original DSA tagging format. The original DSA tagging format carries the same information as the Ethertype DSA tagging format, but with the difference that it does not have an ethertype field. In other words, when receiving a packet that is tagged with an original DSA tag, there is no way of telling in eth_type_trans() that this packet is in fact a DSA-tagged packet. This patch adds a hook into eth_type_trans() which is only compiled in if support for a switch chip that doesn't support Ethertype DSA is selected, and which checks whether there is a DSA switch driver instance attached to this network device which uses the old tag format. If so, it sets the protocol field to ETH_P_DSA without looking at the packet, so that the packet ends up in the right place.

2008-10-08net: Distributed Switch Architecture protocol supportLennert Buytenhek9-0/+1891
Distributed Switch Architecture is a protocol for managing hardware switch chips. It consists of a set of MII management registers and commands to configure the switch, and an ethernet header format to signal which of the ports of the switch a packet was received from or is intended to be sent to. The switches that this driver supports are typically embedded in access points and routers, and a typical setup with a DSA switch looks something like this: +-----------+ +-----------+ | | RGMII | | | +-------+ +------ 1000baseT MDI ("WAN") | | | 6-port +------ 1000baseT MDI ("LAN1") | CPU | | ethernet +------ 1000baseT MDI ("LAN2") | |MIImgmt| switch +------ 1000baseT MDI ("LAN3") | +-------+ w/5 PHYs +------ 1000baseT MDI ("LAN4") | | | | +-----------+ +-----------+ The switch driver presents each port on the switch as a separate network interface to Linux, polls the switch to maintain software link state of those ports, forwards MII management interface accesses to those network interfaces (e.g. as done by ethtool) to the switch, and exposes the switch's hardware statistics counters via the appropriate Linux kernel interfaces. This initial patch supports the MII management interface register layout of the Marvell 88E6123, 88E6161 and 88E6165 switch chips, and supports the "Ethertype DSA" packet tagging format. (There is no officially registered ethertype for the Ethertype DSA packet format, so we just grab a random one. The ethertype to use is programmed into the switch, and the switch driver uses the value of ETH_P_EDSA for this, so this define can be changed at any time in the future if the one we chose is allocated to another protocol or if Ethertype DSA gets its own officially registered ethertype, and everything will continue to work.)
