Hi David

The patches submitted here don't involve any ACPI for MDIO or PHY. It
is all MAC. And it is using standard ACPI primitives for devices,
nothing new.

It is not setting any precedence for MDIO and PHY. That is totally out
of scope for these patches. Whatever is decided for MDIO and PHY can
be added later.
