The IEEE802.3 clause 45 MDIO bus protocol allows for directly
addressing PHY registers using a 21 bit address, and is used by many
10G Ethernet PHYS. Already existing is the ability of MDIO bus
drivers to use clause 45, with the MII_ADDR_C45 flag. Here we add
struct phy_c45_device_ids to hold the device identifier registers
present in clause 45. struct phy_device gets a couple of new fields:
c45_ids to hold the identifiers and is_c45 to signal that it is clause
Normally the MII_ADDR_C45 flag is ORed with the register address to
indicate a clause 45 transaction. Here we also use this flag in the
*device* address passed to get_phy_device() to indicate that probing
should be done with clause 45 transactions.
EXPORT phy_device_create() so that the follow-on patch to of_mdio.c
can use it to create phy devices for PHYs, that have non-standard
device identifier registers, based on the device tree bindings.

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.
Do you realize that at the time get_phy_device() is called, there is no
PHY device? So there can be no attribute, nor are we passing a register
address. Neither of these suggestions apply to this situation.
We need to know a priori if it is c22 or c45. So we need to communicate
the type somehow to get_phy_device(). I chose an unused bit in the addr
parameter to do this, another option would be to add a separate
parameter to get_phy_device() specifying the type.
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
OK, I will fix those...

... and this one too I guess. Really you and Linus should come to a
consensus on this one.
+ * phy_c45_device_ids: 802.3-c45 Device Identifiers

+ * device_ids: The device identifer for each present device.
If you're going to list the struct members use the correct kerneldoc
format to do so.
