> 
> The new ability added to the driver to use mii_bus to handle MII related
> ioctls is causing compile issues when the driver is compiled into the kernel
> (i.e. not a module).
> 
> The simple solution of requiring the driver to be compiled as a module when
> MDIO_BUS is a module, causes a recursion Kconfig issue due to IPSec
> dependencies.
> 
> So created another Kconfig option for ixgbe, to enable mdio_bus support for
> DSA devices.  This solution solves the problem when the ixgbe driver is
> compiled into the kernel and MDIO_BUS is compiled as a module.  In this
> case, the IXGBE_MDIO option is disabled and the code is not compiled into
> the driver.
