I think you should just flat out remove a lot of this stuff:

This is completely unnecessary, if you want to export MII register
values to the user, we have a mechanism for that, via the SIOCGMII*
ioctls.

You can export chip register values via the ethtool register dump API.
Simply implement ethtool_ops->get_regs_len and ethtool_ops->get_regs
and off you go.
