Hi Antoine

It is nice you have wrapped it all up, but it is still messy. Sometime
in the future, we should maybe take another look at adding the concept
of initialisation of a package, before the initialization of the PHYs
in the package.

Having the failed label inside the if is correct, but i think it is
potentially dangerous for future modifications to this function. I
would move the label before the if. I doubt it makes any difference to
the generated code, but it might prevent future bugs.
