Is there any support for the Intel LXT972 PHY chip?  It appears that the LXT970 and LXT971 are supported.

 

Thanks.

reading the source code (drivers/net/phy/lxt.c) indicates that only the 970/971 are supported.  guess you should ask intel when they're going to add support for the 972.

Yeah, I was looking at lxt.c and was hoping I was missing something.  My choices are to get the hardware guys to substitute the lxt971 or I can try to modify lxt.c to add support for the lxt972.  I have the fec.c code that is used on the ColdFire processors, which does have ifdef'd support for the lxt972.

 

Thanks Mike,

 

Steven

going by the lxt.c code, it should be pretty easy to add lxt972 support.  if you do, feel free to post the patch here for merging.
