Emaclite with 2.6 kernel (from git) solved

We're using EDK 10.1.3 and custom virtex2pro board (very close to virtex405-ml405). Kernel is from xilinx git tree as well as device-tree generator.

Following patch to kernel (+1 line) allows kernel to correctly detect emaclite hardware. New EDK version creates xps_ethernetlite version 2.00b by default so kernel detection fails without patch. CONFIG_OF must be enabled from kernel config. Hardware does not seem to have any significant changes between 2.00a and b versions and ethernet seems to work fine.

 

John, could You please include patch to git-tree, thanks.

We are changing the device tree generator to better deal with versioning such that we don't have to change the drivers every time.

 

I'm not planning to integrate this patch as this driver is in the mainline, but the new device tree generator should fix this issue.

 

Sorry about that, thanks for taking the time to give us the diff.
