net: fec: fix MDIO bus assignement for dual fec SoC's
On i.MX28, the MDIO bus is shared between the two FEC instances. The driver makes sure that the second FEC uses the MDIO bus of the first FEC. This is done conditionally if FEC_QUIRK_ENET_MAC is set. However, in newer designs, such as Vybrid or i.MX6SX, each FEC MAC has its own MDIO bus. Simply removing the quirk FEC_QUIRK_ENET_MAC is not an option since other logic, triggered by this quirk, is still needed. Furthermore, there are board designs which use the same MDIO bus for both PHY's even though the second bus would be available on the SoC side. Such layout are popular since it saves pins on SoC side. Due to the above quirk, those boards currently do work fine. The boards in the mainline tree with such a layout are: - Freescale Vybrid Tower with TWR-SER2 (vf610-twr.dts) - Freescale i.MX6 SoloX SDB Board (imx6sx-sdb.dts) This patch adds a new quirk FEC_QUIRK_SINGLE_MDIO for i.MX28, which makes sure that the MDIO bus of the first FEC is used in any case. However, the boards above do have a SoC with a MDIO bus for each FEC instance. But the PHY's are not connected in a 1:1 configuration. A proper device tree description is needed to allow the driver to figure out where to find its PHY. This patch fixes that shortcoming by adding a MDIO bus child node to the first FEC instance, along with the two PHY's on that bus, and making use of the phy-handle property to add a reference to the PHY's.
