Will the next u-boot release have support for SMSC LAN8700?

Message: 50836    we really only develop drivers for MAC/PHY's that are on development boards.  perhaps one of the existing SMSC drivers would be usable for you though.  they can be found in the drivers/ subdirectory.

Mike,

 

the phy on bf537 ezkit and stamp boards will become obsolete soon while thw smsc distributor recommends the newer lan8700. What do we do with our stamp board production?

 

btw the bf527-ezkit comes with lan8700 phy.

Message: 50893    if a newer rev of the BF537 boards had a different PHY on it, we'd update our driver accordingly to support it ... perhaps Robin or Michael could comment as to what would be a "good" PHY choice to make our lives easier.

We talked to our SMSC contact and there are currently no plans to obsolete the 185.  Most of their customers are using the 8700 but the 185 is still available.

Doesn't list it as last time by, and it is not on their list either:
