This doesn't work.  There are a couple of things wrong:

1) Don't use -1, use PHY_POLL

2) As you can tell from #1, the absence of a set interrupt for a  
particular PHY does not indicate it doesn't exist.  Rather, it  
indicates it doesn't have an interrupt.

I think you need to add a phy_mask to the platform data, and then set  
it appropriately.  We also need to look into adding that for the mdio  
nodes in the device tree, so it will get passed in properly.
