The above resolution is not correct: Layerscape is a different SoC
family than i.MX8, using ARCH_LAYERSCAPE instead of ARCH_MXC.

Hence PHY_FSL_LYNX_28G should be moved outside the if/endif block
(and gain a dependency on ARCH_LAYERSCAPE || COMPILE_TEST; I will
 send a patch).

when I'm talking to journalists I just say "programmer" or something like that.
