Ethernet PHY reports irq=POLL; why?

Hi all,

We’re busy bringing up a custom board derived from the BB Black. The CPU is an AM3358, and we’re using 5.10.59-bone49.

I see this in dmesg:

# dmesg | grep -i phy
[    0.000000] Booting Linux on physical CPU 0x0

I’m puzzled why it reports “irq=POLL”. I’d expect it to assign an interrupt.

Is this normal? If not, how do I fix it?

Thanks for your help,
