This mail doesn't meet a single formal criteria for a patch. I suggest
you start here:

At first it would be helpful to know what you're trying to fix:
Which issue on which kernel version?

"Added soft depency from realtec phy to libphy"
That's completely redundant as the Realtek PHY driver has a hard
dependency on phylib.

"u32 phydev_match = !0;"
That's weird. Do you mean ~0 here?

Then you mix completely different things in one patch.

Best first learn about how to submit a formally correct patch series,
and to whom it should be submitted. Once you submit such a RFC series,
we have a basis for a discussion.
