driver provides an interconnection
between the Media Access Control (MAC) sublayer and Physical Layer (PHY)
entities' control and status registers, as defined by the IEEE 802.3 Standard.
layer allows device drivers to share
common support code for various external PHY devices.
MDIO is one of two signal interfaces that comprise the Media Independent
Interface (MII) defined by the IEEE 802.3 Standard. The
driver provides support for devices that require full MII support.
More information on MDIO can be found in the IEEE 802.3 Standard.
