In the U-Boot log, the names of the Ethernet interfaces are printed in the format <name>@<interface type> , for example, DPMAC2@xgmii . DPMAC is a DPAA2 object that identifies the physical interface.  For Linux, in TinyDistro as well as in Ubuntu distribution, by default, only one MAC is enabled as a standard Kernel Ethernet Interface. This interface is named eth0 by default (or eth1 if PCI Express network interface card is discovered first). For details regarding creation of a DPAA2 network interface (DPNI) in Linux, refer to LS1088ARDB/LS1088ARDB-PB - How to create a DPAA2 network interface (DPNI) in Linux The table below shows the mapping of Ethernet port names appearing on the chassis front panel with the port names in U-Boot and Linux for LS1088ARDB.  Port name on chassis Port name in U-Boot Port name in Linux (tinyDistro and Ubuntu userland) Description ETH0 DPMAC2@xgmii not enabled by default XFI optical interface ETH1 DPMAC1@xgmii not enabled by default XFI copper interface ETH2 DPMAC7@qsgmii  not enabled by default QSGMII copper interface ETH3 DPMAC8@qsgmii  not enabled by default QSGMII copper interface ETH4 DPMAC9@qsgmii  not enabled by default QSGMII copper interface ETH5 DPMAC10@qsgmii  not enabled by default QSGMII copper interface ETH6 DPMAC3@qsgmii  not enabled by default QSGMII copper interface ETH7 DPMAC4@qsgmii  not enabled by default QSGMII copper interface ETH8 DPMAC5@qsgmii  eth0  by default (or  eth1  if PCI Express network interface card  is  discovered first) QSGMII copper interface ETH9 DPMAC6@qsgmii  not enabled by default QSGMII copper interface The table below shows the mapping of Ethernet port names appearing on the chassis front panel with the port names in U-Boot and Linux  for LS1088ARDB-PB.

Recently some customers are porting SDK 2.0 u-boot for LS1021ATWR to their custom boards. They intended to use GPIO lines to turn on/off LEDs for diagnostics and other various purposes. However GPIO driver is not supported in SDK 2.0 u-boot for LS102xa platform. The attached patch is used to add GPIO driver on LS1021ATWR platform based on SDK 2.0 u-boot code. Please use it in SDK 2.0 as the following: $ source ./fsl-setup-env -m ls1021atwr $ bitbake u-boot -c cleansstate $ bitbake u-boot -c patch Go to the folder build_ls1021atwr/tmp/work/ls1021atwr-fsl-linux-gnueabi/u-boot-qoriq/2016.01+fslgit-r0/git, apply the attached patch $ patch -p1<0001-ls1021xa-gpio.patch Go back to build_ls1021atwr folder to rebuild u-boot $ bitbake u-boot
