I get your point Robin. Because the mdio child or snps,dwmac-mdio is not mandatory,
there has been this problem.

I agree to have a fixed link check. Possibly this can be done:

Neil and Heiko,

Can you guys please test this on your platforms?
We can post a more cleaner version of the patch if all agree to it.
