SubjectRe: [PATCH net-next] net: phy: Deal with unbound PHY driver in phy_attached_print()
From: Florian Fainelli <>
Date: Tue, 22 Aug 2017 14:26:47 -0700

> Priit reported that stmmac was crashing with the trace below. This is because

> phy_probe() which occurs later.
> Fix this by dealing with a possibly NULL phydev->drv point since that can

> PHY device with the PHY driver.
