14.5 TRD: ETH0 (with Vitesse PHY) not working

ETH0 not working with 14.5 TRD


we've a custom board using as PHY the 'Vitesse 8211' and we problems to run eth0 with 14.5 TRD.

 Here the linux boot with additional debug messages.

 Here the output stops.

This is the function where it stucks...

static int xemacps_mdio_write(struct mii_bus *bus, int mii_id, int phyreg,
	u16 value)
	struct net_local *lp = bus->priv;
	u32 regval;
	volatile u32 ipisr;
	printk("xilinx_emacps.c | xemacps_mdio_write()\n");
	regval |= value;

	printk("xilinx_emacps.c | xemacps_mdio_write(): will call xemacps_write(), baseaddr=0x%x, regval=0x%x\n",lp->baseaddr,regval);

	xemacps_write(lp->baseaddr, XEMACPS_PHYMNTNC_OFFSET, regval);
	printk("xilinx_emacps.c | xemacps_mdio_write(): xemacps_write() called, wait for end of transfer\n");

	/* wait for end of transfer */
	do {
		ipisr = xemacps_read(lp->baseaddr, XEMACPS_NWSR_OFFSET);
	} while ((ipisr & XEMACPS_NWSR_MDIOIDLE_MASK) == 0);
	printk("xilinx_emacps.c | xemacps_mdio_write(): end of function\n");

	return 0;


The Devicetree Configuration looks as follows:

		eth@e000b000 {
			compatible = "xlnx,ps7-ethernet-1.00.a";
			reg = <0xe000b000 0x1000>;

			xlnx,slcr-div1-100Mbps = <5>;
			xlnx,slcr-div1-10Mbps = <50>;
			#address-cells = <0x1>;
			#size-cells = <0x0>;
			mdio {
				#address-cells = <1>;
				#size-cells = <0>;
				phy0: phy@0 {
					compatible = "vitesse,vsc8211";
					device_type = "ethernet-phy";
					reg = <0>;



What can I do? With 14.4 we had no problems.

Thanks for your help!


Best regards,

Hopefully 14.6 TRD will fix this issue.

Does anybody know if there will be a release soon?
