Linux ethernet driver: emacps vs macb

I'm using the linux kernel image from https://github.com/analogdevicesinc/linux for my Zedboard + FMCOMMS3.

 

From zynq.dtsi, it says that ethernet driver is using EMACPS instead of Cadence GEM (MACB) dirver because of lack of support for gmii2rgmii.

 

From Xilinx wiki, it says that as of 2016.3 update, gmii2rgmii is now supported. Also, this page says that the EMACPS is now deprecated.

 

Any plans to use or incorporate MACB into the device tree, instead of EMACPS?

If not, can anybody provide pointers on how this migration may be done, if this is feasible?

 

Thanks!
