as you wrote to me later, missing here is SINGLE_DEPTH_NESTING as the

So now I used  Tejun's patch and Michael patch on top of the net.git as 
of commit 2e0cbf2cc2c9371f0aa198857d799175ffe231a6
"net: mvmdio: add select PHYLIB" from April 13 -- and I still see 
this... so we're not there yet

other info that might help us debug this:
