nit: don't think member-by-member checking is necessary. We don't
expect there to be any alternative versions of the ops, right?

nit: my personal preference would be to hide checking the ops and
calling the member in a static inline helper.

Note that we should be able to remove this from phy.h now:

#if IS_ENABLED(CONFIG_PHYLIB)
int phy_start_cable_test(struct phy_device *phydev,
			 struct netlink_ext_ack *extack);
int phy_start_cable_test_tdr(struct phy_device *phydev,
			     struct netlink_ext_ack *extack,
			     const struct phy_tdr_config *config);
#else
static inline
int phy_start_cable_test(struct phy_device *phydev,
			 struct netlink_ext_ack *extack)
{
	NL_SET_ERR_MSG(extack, "Kernel not compiled with PHYLIB support");
	return -EOPNOTSUPP;
}
static inline
int phy_start_cable_test_tdr(struct phy_device *phydev,
			     struct netlink_ext_ack *extack,
			     const struct phy_tdr_config *config)
{
	NL_SET_ERR_MSG(extack, "Kernel not compiled with PHYLIB support");
	return -EOPNOTSUPP;
}
#endif


We could even risk a direct call:

#if IS_REACHABLE(CONFIG_PHYLIB)
static inline int do_x()
{
	return __do_x();
}
#else
static inline int do_x()
{
	if (!ops)
		return -EOPNOTSUPP;
	return ops->do_x();
}
#endif

But that's perhaps doing too much...
