Hi Igor,

Patchset mostly looks good to me, I put a few comments.

Also I think patch 1/23 & 2/23 can be merged into single commit.

And can you please follow the below format in patch title:
<subsystem>: <start with verb in lowercase and describe what is done>,


from: "net/atlantic: logging macroses and some typedefs"
to: "net/atlantic: add logging structure"

from "net/atlantic: atlantic hardware layer routines"
to: "net/atlantic: add hardware layer routines"

from: "net/atlantic: transmit side structures and implementation"
to: "net/atlantic: implement Tx"
