Ok, I shall add that mode too.

Mediatek calls it Turbo RGMII. It is a overclock version of RGMII mode.
It is used between first GMAC and port 6 of the mt7530 switch. Can be  
used with
an internal and an external mt7530 switch.

TRGMII speed are:
* mt7621: 1200Mbit
* mt7623: 2000Mbit and 2600Mbit.

I think that TRGMII is only used in a fixed-link situation in  
combination with a
mt7530 switch and running and maximum speed/full duplex. So reporting
1000baseT_Full seems to me the right option.

Thanks for this extra information.


I made a list for each mode what that mode should report back when chosen.

PHY_INTERFACE_MODE_SGMII:
	  10baseT_Half
	  10baseT_Full
	 100baseT_Half
	 100baseT_Full
	1000baseT_Full
	1000baseX_Full

PHY_INTERFACE_MODE_1000BASEX:
PHY_INTERFACE_MODE_2500BASEX:
	1000baseX_Full
	2500baseX_Full

PHY_INTERFACE_MODE_TRGMII:
	1000baseT_Full

PHY_INTERFACE_MODE_RGMII:
PHY_INTERFACE_MODE_RGMII_ID:
PHY_INTERFACE_MODE_RGMII_RXID:
PHY_INTERFACE_MODE_RGMII_TXID:
	  10baseT_Half
	  10baseT_Full
	 100baseT_Half
	 100baseT_Full
	1000baseT_Half
	1000baseT_Full
	1000baseX_Full

PHY_INTERFACE_MODE_GMII:
	  10baseT_Half
	  10baseT_Full
	 100baseT_Half
	 100baseT_Full
	1000baseT_Half
	1000baseT_Full

PHY_INTERFACE_MODE_MII:
PHY_INTERFACE_MODE_RMII:
PHY_INTERFACE_MODE_REVMII:
	 10baseT_Half
	 10baseT_Full
	100baseT_Half
	100baseT_Full

case PHY_INTERFACE_MODE_NA:
	  10baseT_Half
	  10baseT_Full
	 100baseT_Half
	 100baseT_Full
	1000baseT_Half
	1000baseT_Full
	1000baseX_Full
	2500baseX_Full

I think this is the full list.
Or do I miss something?

Greats,

René
