What exactly are you referring to when you say "connection status events"?

This has two aspects: One is the LED status which needs to be set with switch0 (I commented on that in my previous e-mail reviewing your v2 patch again).

The other one is that switch-phy-swap has an effect on which ports can detect link status changes. This setting will affect several things:
1. Which port gets link detection
2. The port numbers will change
3. The order in which gmacs are set up will change: If you change that, eth0 will become eth1 and vice versa (on running system). This will require adjustment of setup in 02_network/01_leds, where ethX then needs to be swapped, too. Note that for several devices eth0/eth1 are swapped compared to ar71xx.

So, you really have a lot to play around with and to make wrong ;-)

For further reading on the effects of switch-phy-swap, you might have a look at this Pull Request (starting at the comment):


Note that the situation in the PR is even more complicated as the vendor did a dumbass setup in the first place.
