In order for controllers to get PHY in case of non dt boot, the phy

I would rather not pass strings around, any other way to handle this ?
Why do you need to pass this string ?

Our old way of binding the controller and the phy using device name started creating problems after the devices are created using PLATFORM_DEVID_AUTO. Infact non-dt boot is broken in mainline for OMAP3 platforms for which I have posted a RFC series,708632 which also uses strings.
I'm not sure of any other way to deal with this.
