I kind of agree with Florian that you probably don't need this.

And furthermore, this fixed_phy_get_status() interface you created
isn't even used for what it's designed for.

As coded, fixed_phy_get_status() returns the link status structure,
but here you are only interested in whether a phy is fixed or not
because you're simply making a boolean test upon whether you were
given a non-NULL fixed phy status or not.
