Well, this driver is a bit different and our priv->phy_drv != phydev-
>drv, so we can't use the helper directly. I should probably have
mentionned it in the commit message, sorry!

As I was mentionning to Andrew in the initial submission of this patch,
this driver is a bit unusual since it represents a GMII to RGMII
bridge, so it's not actually a PHY driver on its own -- it just sticks
itself in between the actual PHY and the MAC.

Cheers and thanks for the review,

Paul
