We are adding the Cavium OCTEON-III network driver. Since interacting with the input and output queues is done via special CPU local memory, we also need to add support to the MIPS/Octeon architecture code. The four patch set to add this prerequisite code has been split out to a seperate patch set sent to the mips-linux list.
A separate pull request was recently done by Steven Hill for the firmware required by the driver. Changes in v8: o Fixed locking in bgx port functions as noted by davem. o Corrected SPDX-License-Identifier tags. o Split driver from prerequisite patches. Changes in v7: o There was no v7, we go to v8 to synchronize version numbers with prerequisites. Changes in v6: o Added back cleanup patch for previous generation SoC "staging" driver, as Greg K-H acked it. o Moved FPA driver to drivers/net/ethernet/cavium/octeon as it is currently only used by the octeon3-ethernet driver. o Many code formatting fixes as noted by davem. Changes in v5: o Removed cleanup patch for previous generation SoC "staging" driver, as it will be sent as a follow-on. o Fixed kernel doc formatting in all patches. o Removed redundant licensing text boilerplate. o Reviewed-by: header added to 2/7. o Rewrote locking code in 3/7 to eliminate inline asm. Changes in v4: o Use phy_print_status() instead of open coding the equivalent. o Print warning on phy mode mismatch. o Improve dt-bindings and add Acked-by. Changes in v3: o Fix PKI (RX path) initialization to work with little endian kernel. Changes in v2: o Cleanup and use of standard bindings in the device tree bindings document. o Added (hopefully) clarifying comments about several OCTEON architectural peculiarities. o Removed unused testing code from the driver. o Removed some module parameters that already default to the proper values. o KConfig cleanup, including testing on x86_64, arm64 and mips. o Fixed breakage to the driver for previous generation of OCTEON SoCs (in the staging directory still). o Verified bisectability of the patch set.
