Kishon, I have added stubs for this function in my next patch set.
However I am still unclear on whether I need to make GENERIC_PHY an
invisible option or change my "select" to "depend" ? It seems like there
was no consensus on this? Do you have any final thoughts before i send
out the next patch set? Thanks
