make two ethernet ports work with TE820
« on: December 10, 2019, 12:58:40 PM »
Hallo to everybody,

I have a problem using two ethernet ports with te820 and I hope I will find help here.

First of all some information:
-   I am using Xilinx TE820 SoM from Trenz (TE0820-2EG-1EA)
-   Ethernet 1 uses the GEM3 and it is connected via MIO Pins to the PHY. It works fine with following DT:

* Ethernet 1 */
/* ETH PHY */
&gem3 {
    status = "okay";
    ethernet_phy1: ethernet-phy@1 {
        compatible = "marvell,88e1510";
        device_type = "ethernet-phy";
        reg = <1>;
    };
};

-   Ethernet 0 uses the GEM0 and it is connected via EMIO Pins to the FPGA. There it goes to a gmii2rgmii converter and then to Ethernet Phy TI83822.
-   The gmii2rgmii has the following configuration:
see re-customizeIP.PNG in the attachments

-   The DT for Ethernet 0 looks like this:

/* Ethernet 0 */
&gem0 {
    status = "okay";
   phy-mode = "rgmii-id";
   ethernet_phy5: ethernet-phy@5 {
              device_type = "ethernet-phy";
       compatible = "xlnx,xps-ethernetlite-1.00.a";
        reg = <5>;
    };
};


While Booting I get following information on terminal:

Net:   ZYNQ GEM: ff0b0000, phyaddr ffffffff, interface rgmii-id
eth0: ethernet@ff0b0000ZYNQ GEM: ff0e0000, phyaddr ffffffff, interface rgmii-id
, eth1: ethernet@ff0e0000

After Booting, using ifconfig, I get the information:

Connecting / disconnecting my pc to Ethernet 0 and 1 shows terminal output:

[ 1830.348681] macb ff0b0000.ethernet eth0: link down


Seems somehow to be working… but: I can only ping Ethernet1.

I did check:
- IP Adress of my computer
- Firewall of my computer
- several compatibles in DeviceTree for &gem0
 (compatible = "marvell,88e1510";
  compatible = "ethernet-phy-id2000.5C90";
  compatible = "xlnx,xps-ethernetlite-1.00.a"

without getting ethernet0 to work.
   
Any hints what am I doing wrong?

Kind Regards
Thomas

Hallo Thomas,

in your configuration you put
&gem0 {
    status = "okay";
   phy-mode = "rgmii-id";
   ethernet_phy5: ethernet-phy@5 {
              device_type = "ethernet-phy";
       compatible = "xlnx,xps-ethernetlite-1.00.a";
        reg = <5>;
    };
};
but it's wrong. At MDIO address 5 you have GMII to RGMII core, not PHY. You should put here an address and if possible driver settings for your real physical PHY.
GMII to RGMII core does not replace your PHY it just provides clock and signals interface conversion.
You can enable GMII to RGMII driver in your kernel settings or set fixed link speed for GMII to RGMII

Hallo Oleksandr,

thanks for your answer.

“At MDIO address 5 you have GMII to RGMII core, not PHY.” => ok, I corrected reg = <5> to <0>
“You should put here an address and if possible driver settings for your real physical PHY” =>
I am not sure what Linux compatible to use for the TI DP83822
And I am not sure if the Phy requires other settings in the DT.

I tried following deviceTree-Settings:

 /* Ethernet 0 */
&gem0 {
    phy-handle = <&phy0>;
    status = "okay";
    phy-mode = "rgmii-id";
    phy0: ethernet-phy@0 {
         compatible = "marvell,88e1510";
         device_type = "ethernet-phy";   
         reg = <0>;
     };
};   

   Result: Terminaloutput while booting:
Cannot find device "eth1"
Cannot find device "eth1:1"
Cannot find device "eth1:1"

Second try:
/* Ethernet 0 */
&gem0 {
   status = "okay";
   phy-mode = "rgmii-id";
   ethernet_phy0: ethernet-phy@0 {
       compatible = "xlnx,xps-ethernetlite-1.00.a";
       device_type = "ethernet-phy";   
       reg = <0>;
    };

   Result:
Both ethernets can be recognized. Still pinging Ethernet 1 is not possible.

Third try: Removing compatible
/* Ethernet 0 */
&gem0 {
 status = "okay";
 phy-mode = "rgmii-id";
 ethernet_phy0: ethernet-phy@0 {
  //compatible = "xlnx,xps-ethernetlite-1.00.a";
  device_type = "ethernet-phy";   
  reg = <0>;
 };

   Result:
Cannot find device "eth1"
Cannot find device "eth1:1"
Cannot find device "eth1:1"


Still I am not able to run both Ethernets.

My questions:
1.)   What is the correct compatible for TI DP83822 Phy? Or exists a compatible list, where I can check?
2.)   Is there any need to mention MDIO in the devicetree?
3.)   Is there any need to mention rgmii-convertion in the devicetree?

4.)   At the moment I am changing devicetree, compiling and booting Linux to check what my changes effected. This workflow is very time-consuming: Is there any possibility to test changes in the devicetree without rebuilding Linuximage?

5.)   Is there any need to use petalinux 2018.3? At moment I am using

Linux PetaLinux 4.14.0-xilinx-v2018.2 #1 SMP Mon Dec 9 13:09:18 CET 2019 aarch64 aarch64 aarch64 GNU/Linux

Thanks a lot!

Kind Regards
Thomas

Hi,

1) we have not used DP83822 and unfortunatly can not give you more advice about correct compatible string
2) you indirectly already mention the MDIO (phy@0 - means MDIO at address 0)
3) is maybe described in Xilinx documentation?
4) it is possible to have DTB file as separate file, then you can make mods to only devicetree and not recompiling all linux
5) hard to tell, there are changes in all releases, so can not say if there is difference for your case
