Subject: Re: [PATCH v4] net: dsa: microchip: call phy_remove_link_mode
 during probe

> When doing "ip link set dev ... up" for a ksz9477 backed link,
> ksz9477_phy_setup is called and it calls phy_remove_link_mode to remove

> Therefore move the phy_remove_link_mode calls into

> Remove phy_setup from ksz_dev_ops as no users remain.
