Emaclite Driver

Introduction

The purpose of this page is to document the Emaclite driver that is in the mainline kernel.

PHY Lib Support

A patch, titled "net: emaclite: adding MDIO and phy lib support" was accepted into the mainline kernel and is available in 2.6.34.

The driver now uses the PHY lib layer of the kernel such that it should work better on boards with other phys.

The following snippet needs to be added to the device tree under the EmacLite node as the Xilinx device tree generator does not generate it yet.

mdio {
    #address-cells = <1>;
    #size-cells = <0>;
    phy0: phy@7 {
        reg = <7>;
    } ;
} ;
