I have done the following compile tests to comfirm this resolves the
issue:

Kconfig:     1   2   3   4
--------    --- --- --- ---
ixgbe        m   m   y   y
 ixgbe_mdio  y   n   y   y
mdio_bus     m   m   m   y
phylib       m   m   m   y

Test #3 resulted in ixgbe_mdio being disabled and code not compiled
into the driver.
