    Hi Roger

    Networking patches should include in the subject line which tree they
    are for. In this case, net-next. So please make the Subject

    [patch v3 net-next] .....

    It would be good to explicitly say that it is in uS as part of the
    comment.

    Also, please document that we expect a list of child nodes, one per
    device on the bus. These should follow the generic phy.txt, or a
    device specific binding document.

    It would be good to say something like:

    This example shows these optional properties, plus other properties
    required for the TI Davinci MDIO driver.

    Pointing this out may stop people cut/past the ti,hwmods property.

    And please include at least one PHY on the bus.

    Sorry for asking for so much in the documentation. That is the problem
    with the documentation being missing to start with.

    The code looks good now.
