Hi Ioana

We should think about naming convention here.

All MDIO bus driver, MDIO multiplexors etc use mdio- as a prefix.

This is not a bus driver, so i don't think it should use the mdio-
prefix. How about pcs-lynx.c?

In terms of Kconfig, MDIO_ prefix is used for MDIO bus drivers etc.  I
don't think it is appropriate here. How about PCS_LYNX? I don't think
any other subsystem is using PCS_ as a prefix.

Maybe add this at the end, and add a

comment "PCS device drivers"

before it? I'm assuming with time we will have more of these drivers.
