Subject: Re: [PATCH 2/2] of_mdio: Allow the DT to specify the phy ID and avoid autoprobing

Who is responsible for bringing the PHY out of reset, is it the
Ethernet/MDIO bus driver? Is the PHY put into reset using, e.g a GPIO
line or any sort of reset controller, if so, should not we have some
sort of reset handle node and handle that in a generic manner?

Is your DTS or DTB hardcoding the PHY id, or are you having your
bootloader detect the exact PHY for you, then putting back the PHY
into reset to save power, until someone uses that PHY again?

You might want to guard against 0x0 and 0xffff just in case whoever
fills this information in the Device Tree was reading bogus data out
of the MDIO bus, otherwise, chances are that the "Generic PHY" driver
will be picked up, and it might still not be appropriate for driving
your PHY chip.
