Now the Davinci MDIO driver updates mii_bus->phy_mask from
its reset routine to limit number of phy addresses to be scanned.

The MDIO bus scanning has to be skipped at all in case of DT MDIO registration.
And of_mdiobus_register() maintain mii_bus->phy_mask by itself,
thus driver shouldn't touch it.

I'll add above comment. Is it ok?

will fix it.
