You can safely remove the call to phy_init_hw(), as it will do nothing:

int phy_init_hw(struct phy_device *phydev)
{
        int ret = 0;

        if (!phydev->drv || ...) <- always true at this point
                return 0;


Also you should check the return value of phy_scan_fixups.

So this can be actually hit.
