I also have a few comments after looking through the driver.

Regular commenting style would be

Best avoid all these prototypes. Instead, reorder the functions in the
driver so you don't need them. That is the order in which reviewers expect
them.

For extended function documentation, use the kerneldoc style, e.g.

/**
* umal_mii_reset - reset MII bus
*
* @bus: MDIO bus handle
*
* Returns 0
*/
See also Documentation/kernel-doc-nano-HOWTO.txt

It seems that you tried to convert the driver to NAPI but did not succeed,
as this function is only called from the interrupt handler directly.

There is usually a significant performance win from using NAPI, so you
should better try again. If you had problems doing that, please ask
on netdev.

You can use random_ether_addr() to generate a working unique MAC address
if the hardware does not provide one.
