You could register a PHY fixup in your board code that does exactly what
you are you doing here, except that you would match 0x00221556,
something along those lines:

static int micrel_ipam390_phy_fixup(struct phy_device *dev)
{
       if (dev->phy_id == 0x00221556)
		dev->phy_id = 0x00221550;

        return 0;
}

int __init micrel_ipam390_phy_fixup_register(void)
{
        return phy_register_fixup_for_id(PHY_ANY_ID, micrel_ipam390);
}
