Subject: [PATCH 0/3] resolve module name conflict for asix PHY and USB modules 

Haven't heard back in a while, so here goes: 

Commit 31dd83b96641 ("net-next: phy: new Asix Electronics PHY driver")
introduced a new PHY driver drivers/net/phy/asix.c that causes a module
name conflict with a pre-existiting driver (drivers/net/usb/asix.c). 

The PHY driver is used by the X-Surf 100 ethernet card driver, and loaded
by that driver via its PHY ID. A rename of the driver looks unproblematic.
Rename PHY driver to ax88796b.c in order to resolve name conflict. 

Fixes: 31dd83b96641 ("net-next: phy: new Asix Electronics PHY driver")
