Right, adding something like a genphy_{read,write}_mmd() doesn't make
too much sense for now. What I meant is just exporting mmd_phy_indirect().
Then you don't have to open-code the first three steps of a mmd read/write.
And it requires no additional code in phylib.
But that's not at all a showstopper here.
