Also suggest you to provide the stmmac patches for net-next.
The stmmac driver has been recently updated and I've also several
patches to commit (for example for PCI etc) on it.

I'm happy that the support for big endianess arrived.
I supported a guy some time ago but he didn't provided me the patches
tested on his side :-(. So welcome yours and many thanks Kelvin!

Please send the stmmac patches and add me on CC. I'm happy to help you
on reviewing them.

Concerning the descriptors, we could have two different files:

descs_le.h
descs_be.h

and select their inclusion inside the common.h.

Please use instead of the macro CONFIG_MACH_LOONGSON1 another one more
generic e.g. CONFIG_STMMAC_BE  (and add it in the driver's Kconfig).

On your platform you will have to enable it by default.
Or it could be the default on MIPS: LE will be on ARM and SuperH.

No. I do not want to see all these ifdef inside the code.
I had to rework some driver's part just last week to avoid this kind of
code. I suggest you to re-base the work against the net-next kernel and
look at how the ring/chained modes have been managed.

I added a new file called descs_com.h that you can re-use adding small
inline functions where define the changes for be mode.

This code exists because we have to properly handle the jumbo frames.

Note that this code has been reworked to use the ring/chained modes.
Take a look at descs_com.h.

I expect to see the driver on your platform that uses jumbo and
chained/ring modes.
