> Kernel 3.17 driver supports only RGMII ethernet interface.
> Since the Tianocore DT contains same compatibility string for RGMII,
> SGMII based 1G and XFI based 10G interfaces, crash happens when probe called
> on SGMII based 1G and XFI based 10G interface.
> This patch fixes the backward compatibility of the older driver with the
> newer firmware by making the binding unique so that the older driver won't
> recognize the non-supported interfaces.
> v2: Address comments from v1
> * updated cover letter subject line with net: xgene
> * Documentation: formatted compatible string values as list
> v1:
> * Initial version

Series applied, thanks.
