Subject: [PATCH RFC 0/7] Clause 45 PHY probing cleanups


In response to the patch set that Jeremy posted, this is my proposal
to expand our Clause 45 PHY probing.

I've taken a slightly different approach, with the view to avoiding
as much behavioural change as possible.  The biggest difference is
to do with "devices_in_package" - we were using it for two different
purposes, which are now separated.

This is not against net-next nor net trees, but against my own private
tree, but I'm posting it to serve as an illustration of what I think
should be done - I knocked this up this morning.

The only potential regression that I'm expecting is with 88x3310 PHYs
of the later revision, which have the clause 22 registers implemented.
I haven't yet checked whether they set bit 0, but if they do, the
various decision points that we have based on that bit could adversely
affect this PHY - it needs testing, which I'll do when I dig out the
appropriate hardware.  Probably also needs the 2110 PHYs checked as

I haven't tested this series yet beyond compile testing.

Given the proximity of the merge window, this *isn't* code I'd like to
see merged into net-next - it's way too risky at this point.  So, we
have time to consider our options.
