Subject: [PATCH] phylib: Don't allow core of phylib to build as a module

The core portions of the phylib aren't capable of being used as
a module.  This isn't really any different than something like i2c
in that the bus driver and core need to be built into the kernel.

Signed-off-by: Kumar Gala <>

Jeff, please consider this for 2.6.26 as w/o it we get build issues
if phylib is config'd as a module on ppc.
