[BPI-R2] linux 5.0-rc1

(Frank W.) #1


linus released first 5.0-rc, i have added it to my repo and made basic changes for r2.

currently there is a warning at bootup (drivers/net/phy/phy.c:548 phy_start_aneg+0x110/0x144)

Seems to caused by https://github.com/torvalds/linux/blob/master/drivers/net/ethernet/mediatek/mtk_eth_soc.c#L359

but this specific line exists more than a half year. differences to 4.20 where no error appears is this commit:

i cannot revert it and also not changing back mtk_eth_soc.c

network works so far on quick test. wrote to david miller (net maintainer) about this issue

@Ryder.Lee: can you please ask sean about his email-account (i get still reject-errors)?

regards Frank


You can send to Sean Wang [sean.wang@kernel.org]
