I actually think you need to talk to the core device model people and
those who support suspend/resume.

It seems like there should be a way to declare a dependency, probably
a probe time, so the core will just do the right things. I don't see
why MDIO busses should be the first to have this problem, so i expect
there already exists a solution.
