[PATCH 0/5] mv643xx_eth: use mvmdio MDIO bus driver

Hi all,

This patch converts the mv643xx_eth driver to use the mvmdio MDIO bus driver
instead of rolling its own implementation. As a result, all users of this
mv643xx_eth driver are converted to register an "orion-mdio" platform_device.
The mvmdio driver is also updated to support an interrupt line which reports
SMI error/completion, and to allow traditionnal platform device registration
instead of just device tree.

David, I think it makes sense for you to merge all of this, since we do
not want the architecture files to be desynchronized from the mv643xx_eth to
avoid runtime breakage. The potential for merge conflicts should be very small.

You can probably safely merge patches 1 to 4 if Thomas agrees, and we will
see what kind of feeback I get on patch 5.

Florian Fainelli (5):
  net: mvmdio: unmap base register address at driver removal
  net: mvmdio: rename base register cookie from smireg to regs
  net: mvmdio: enhance driver to support SMI error/done interrupts
  net: mvmdio: allow Device Tree and platform device to coexist
