Yes, sorry for overseeing this ... but there are SoCs in upstream which
set FEC_QUIRK_SINGLE_MDIO and so mii bus from for example fec0 is used on
other fecX devices, correct?

And for them probing currently fail, when probed before fec0.

Hmm.. simply deferring the probe to later point solves the problem here.

I added Alexander may he can comment...
