Subject: [PATCH net-next v2 3/7] net: macb: parse PHY nodes found under an MDIO node

The MACB embeds an MDIO bus controller. For this reason, the PHY nodes
were represented as sub-nodes in the MACB node. Generally, the
Ethernet controller is different than the MDIO controller, so the PHYs
are probed by a separate MDIO driver. Since adding the PHY nodes directly
under the ETH node became deprecated, we adjust the MACB driver to look
for an MDIO node and register the subnode MDIO devices.
