Give Feedback set_hssi_profile for E-Tile

The bit encoding of each profile within DR groups are shown in section Get_hssi_profile . When profile switching is finished, NIOS writes 1 to the BUSY bit in the HSSI Command/Status CSR to indicate that the DR operation is in process. Once the DR operation is completed, NIOS sets the ACK_TRANS and ERROR bits to indicate success or failure of the operation.

The following limitations are enforced on valid profile switching when the user performs dynamic reconfiguration:
  1. Cross-DR group profile swapping is not permitted.
    • For example, profiles inside the 100G Ethernet protocol are not permitted.
    • Profiles within 25G Ethernet + CPRI, 10/25G Ethernet DR groups, and so on are not permitted.
  2. Valid profile switching within the DR group is shown below.

    • The current release does not support external AIB clocking or PTP.
    • There is no direct DR transition support between 100G PAM4 and 4x25G NRZ modes.
  3. Initiating DR through direct CSR writes is not supported. You should always use the SAL to trigger the DR flow.

    If the DR flow triggered by SAL fails due to a timeout (SAL error bit set), you should reset the transceiver channel by writing to PHY_CONFIG (0x310 offset) register bit 0-2 (Soft CSR/TX/RX reset) for that specific transceiver CSR register space.
