Wedson did this [1], note the `# mod module_fs_sample`:

/// # Examples
///
/// ```
/// # mod module_fs_sample {
/// use kernel::prelude::*;
/// use kernel::{c_str, fs};
///
/// kernel::module_fs! {
///     type: MyFs,
///     name: "myfs",
///     author: "Rust for Linux Contributors",
///     description: "My Rust fs",
///     license: "GPL",
/// }
///
/// struct MyFs;
/// impl fs::FileSystem for MyFs {
///     const NAME: &'static CStr = c_str!("myfs");
/// }
/// # }
/// ```

Here the `unsafe` block and the `SAFETY` comment are pretty far away.
What about this?:

fn init(module: &'static ThisModule) -> Result<Self> {
     // SAFETY: The anonymous constant guarantees that nobody else can access
     // the `DRIVERS` static. The array is used only in the C side.
     let drivers = unsafe { &mut DRIVERS };
     let mut reg =
         ::kernel::net::phy::Registration::register(module, ::core::pin::Pin::static_mut(drivers))?;
     Ok(Module { _reg: reg })
}

Also note that I added `::` to the front of `core`.
