I see no value in having two ways to say that clause-45 transactions
should be used.
Either make it a PHY device attribute, or specify it in the address
in the register accesses, but not both.
Also your patch is full of coding style errors, I simply couldn't
stomache applying this even if I agreed with the substance of the
> + i < ARRAY_SIZE(c45_ids->device_ids) &&
> + c45_ids->devices_in_package == 0;
c45_ids on the second line should line up with the initial 'i'
on the first line.
> + c45_ids->devices_in_package = (phy_reg & 0xffff) << 16;
> + reg_addr = MII_ADDR_C45 | i << 16 | 5;
There is not reason in the world to have two empty lines there, it

Two empty lines. This is extremely irritating, it looks like you
had some kind of debugging code here and then were very lazy about

If you're going to list the struct members use the correct kerneldoc
format to do so.
