I don't see any reason the first two patches should not be sent. I'm
carrying the second one locally because I use it in some changes I've
made to the mv88e6xxx code - as I mentioned in the patchwork entry you
linked to. See:

"net: phylink: Add helpers for c22 registers without MDIO"

Although I notice I committed it to my tree with the wrong author. :(

Sean, please can you submit the mdiodev patch and this patch for
net-next as they have general utility? Thanks.
