Hi Uwe,
I am a little puzzled at your platform

- Which phy you have used? ulpi phy ,internal phy or other external phy?
- If you use ulpi phy, why you still need to use nop phy driver?
Besides, according to chris patch, the ulpi can only be visited after
- Do you have some hardware related operation at phy's probe? If it exists,
why not move it to phy->init?
