I'm not sure it helps, but my thought process following some of the 
discussion last night was:

something to the effect:

	for (i = 1; i < MDIO_MMD_NUM && *devs == 0; i++) {
+		if (i & RESERVED_MMDS)
+			continue;

where RESERVED_MMDS was a hardcoded bitfield matching the IEEE reserved 
MMDs. or maybe a "IGNORE_MMDS" which also includes BIT0 and other MMDs 
the code doesn't understand.
