Subject: [PATCH 0/3] mdio: Parse DT nodes for auto-probed PHYs

Hi Florian,

here's another aproach of solving the issue with auto-probed buses and
DT device nodes. In short, this patch set introduces a new hook which
sets the of_node pointer of a phy device to a subnode of the bus, if
there is any which matches the phy's address. This function is called
from mdiobus_scan(), and is a no-op for !CONFIG_OF.

Unlike with with the 1st version, dev->of_node is now available in the
PHY driver's probe() callback already.

Let me know what you think, I'm open to other ideas :)


Daniel Mack (3):
  net: of_mdio: factor out code to parse a phy's 'reg' property
  net: of_mdio: add of_mdiobus_link_phydev()
  net: of_mdio: don't store the length of a property if we don't need to
