Radhey,

I think Andrew added me because he's pointing you towards fw_devlink.

Andrew,

I have intentionally not added phy-handle support to fw_devlink
because it would also prevent the generic driver from binding/cause
issues with DSA. I have some high level ideas on fixing that but
haven't gotten around to it yet.
