Subject: [PATCH net 0/2] net: phy: fix locking issue

Russell pointed out that the locking used in phy_is_started() isn't
needed and misleading. This locking also contributes to a race fixed
with patch 2.

Heiner Kallweit (2):
  net: phy: don't use locking in phy_is_started
  net: phy: fix potential race in the phylib state machine
