Thanks for your patch, which is now commit f8217275b57aa48d ("net:
mdio: Delete usage of driver_deferred_probe_check_state()") in
driver-core/driver-core-next.

Seems like I missed something when providing my T-b for this series,
sorry for that.

arch/arm/boot/dts/r8a7791-koelsch.dts has:

    &ether {
            pinctrl-0 = <&ether_pins>, <&phy1_pins>;
            pinctrl-names = "default";

            phy-handle = <&phy1>;
            renesas,ether-link-active-low;
            status = "okay";

            phy1: ethernet-phy@1 {
                    compatible = "ethernet-phy-id0022.1537",
                                 "ethernet-phy-ieee802.3-c22";
                    reg = <1>;
                    interrupt-parent = <&irqc0>;
                    interrupts = <0 IRQ_TYPE_LEVEL_LOW>;
                    micrel,led-mode = <1>;
                    reset-gpios = <&gpio5 22 GPIO_ACTIVE_LOW>;
            };
    };

Despite the interrupts property, &ether is now probed before irqc0
(interrupt-controller@...c0000 in arch/arm/boot/dts/r8a7791.dtsi),
causing the PHY not finding its interrupt, and resorting to polling:

    -Micrel KSZ8041RNLI ee700000.ethernet-ffffffff:01: attached PHY
driver (mii_bus:phy_addr=ee700000.ethernet-ffffffff:01, irq=185)
    +Micrel KSZ8041RNLI ee700000.ethernet-ffffffff:01: attached PHY
driver (mii_bus:phy_addr=ee700000.ethernet-ffffffff:01, irq=POLL)

Reverting this commit, and commit 9cbffc7a59561be9 ("driver core:
Delete driver_deferred_probe_check_state()") fixes that.

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