It's almost fine, except for one << 16 I seem to have left in

I can also report that the 2nd revision of the 88x3310 PHY does
_not_ have bit 0 set in the devices-in-package (just like the first
revision).  The 2nd revision should respond to clause 22 cycles, but
as it's connected to the XSMI interface on the 8040, clause 22 cycles
can't be generated.

Also, I found this in linux/mdio.h:

#define MDIO_SUPPORTS_C22               1
#define MDIO_SUPPORTS_C45               2
#define MDIO_EMULATE_C22                4

which are for use with struct mdio_if_info which we don't use in
phylib.  That seems relevant to our discussions last night.
