My standalone ls1021a does not need eth0,eth1,eth2 PHY interface. How am I able to remove it from my kernel ?
should I only need to remove these definitions from the packages/linux/linux/arch/arm/boot/dts# ls1021a.dts file?
What are the steps I need to implement?
Correct me if I am wrong.
The ls1021a-twr has eth0,eth1,eth2 physical interface on the board with 3 different mac addresses. That's why when you get into the kernel and do a ifconfig you can see eth0,eth1 and eth2
in the uboot
How can I remove all of these from my system I do not need them to be part of my system as my customized system does not have ethernet ports anymore.
Do I need to change things in the dtsi file and uboot binary then recompile them ?
If you don't want network connectivity at all, it should be sufficient to add a "disabled" property to all Device Tree
nodes that represent network adapters.
Hope this helps,
