Thanks for this information.


I updated mt7530_phylink_mac_config(), I think I done it right this time
with the pause bits.

Now mt7530_phylink_mac_config() looks like this:

static void mt7530_phylink_mac_config(struct dsa_switch *ds, int port,
				      unsigned int mode,
				      const struct phylink_link_state *state)
{
	struct mt7530_priv *priv = ds->priv;
	u32 mcr_cur, mcr_new = 0;

	switch (port) {
	case 0: /* Internal phy */
	case 1:
	case 2:
	case 3:
	case 4:
		if (state->interface != PHY_INTERFACE_MODE_GMII)
			return;
		break;
	case 5: /* 2nd cpu port with phy of port 0 or 4 / external phy */
		if (!phy_interface_mode_is_rgmii(state->interface) &&
		    state->interface != PHY_INTERFACE_MODE_MII)
			return;
		if (priv->p5_intf_sel != P5_INTF_SEL_GMAC5) {
			priv->p5_intf_sel = P5_INTF_SEL_GMAC5;
			mt7530_setup_port5(ds, state->interface);
		}
		/* We are connected to external phy */
		if (dsa_is_user_port(ds, 5))
			mcr_new |= PMCR_EXT_PHY;
		break;
	case 6: /* 1st cpu port */
		if (state->interface != PHY_INTERFACE_MODE_RGMII &&
		    state->interface != PHY_INTERFACE_MODE_TRGMII)
			return;

		if (priv->p6_interface == state->interface)
			break;
		/* Setup TX circuit incluing relevant PAD and driving */
		mt7530_pad_clk_setup(ds, state->interface);

		if (priv->id == ID_MT7530) {
			/* Setup RX circuit, relevant PAD and driving on the
			 * host which must be placed after the setup on the
			 * device side is all finished.
			 */
			mt7623_pad_clk_setup(ds);
		}
		priv->p6_interface = state->interface;
		break;
	default:
		dev_err(ds->dev, "%s: unsupported port: %i\n", __func__, port);
		return;
	}

	mcr_cur = mt7530_read(priv, MT7530_PMCR_P(port));
	mcr_new |= mcr_cur;
	mcr_new &= ~(PMCR_FORCE_SPEED_1000 | PMCR_FORCE_SPEED_100 |
		     PMCR_FORCE_FDX | PMCR_TX_FC_EN | PMCR_RX_FC_EN);
	mcr_new |= PMCR_IFG_XMIT(1) | PMCR_MAC_MODE | PMCR_BACKOFF_EN |
		   PMCR_BACKPR_EN | PMCR_FORCE_MODE | PMCR_FORCE_LNK;

	switch (state->speed) {
	case SPEED_1000:
		mcr_new |= PMCR_FORCE_SPEED_1000;
		break;
	case SPEED_100:
		mcr_new |= PMCR_FORCE_SPEED_100;
		break;
	}
	if (state->duplex == DUPLEX_FULL) {
		mcr_new |= PMCR_FORCE_FDX;
		if (state->pause & MLO_PAUSE_TX)
			mcr_new |= PMCR_TX_FC_EN;
		if (state->pause & MLO_PAUSE_RX)
			mcr_new |= PMCR_RX_FC_EN;
	}

	if (mcr_new != mcr_cur)
		mt7530_write(priv, MT7530_PMCR_P(port), mcr_new);
}

Greats,

René
