ARM64 – Odroid C2 – A Better Ethernet Fix..

The old meson Ethernet fix/patch/hack no longer applies cleanly to the latest (December 1) linux-next, but – fortunately – there is a ‘better’ patch available for the meson8b-dwmac driver itself..

Details can be found in this thread:  http://lists.infradead.org/pipermail/linux-amlogic/2016-November/001675.html

I have applied these patches to the December 1 linux-next tree, on the Odroid C2, and the Ethernet link works correctly, again..

......
meson8b-dwmac c9410000.ethernet eth0: Link is Up - 1Gbps/Full - flow control rx/tx
IPv6: ADDRCONF(NETDEV_CHANGE): eth0: link becomes ready
Link is Up - 1000/Full
...
Fedora 25 (Workstation Edition)
Kernel 4.9.0-rc7-next-20161201-c2 on an aarch64 (ttyAML0)

This is still work-in-progress, but should be available soon as part of the mainline linux-next tree..

  1. Is there any chance I could get a sdcard image of your fedora 25 build? I have an odroid c2, but cannot try to do this myself because I don’t have Linux on my main computer, because it is shared with my brother. (I AM 10 years old!) I would love to have a rpm-based distribution on it! Any help is appreciated.
