Hi Heiner

It think this is wrong. You need to use __phy_read(). phy_read() does
an mdiobus_read(), which takes the bus->mdio_lock. However,

int phy_save_page(struct phy_device *phydev)
{
        mutex_lock(&phydev->mdio.bus->mdio_lock);
        return __phy_read_page(phydev);
}

This also takes the same lock. So this should deadlock.

Try turning on CONFIG_PROVE_LOCKING, it will detect problems like
this.
