Shouldn't we report if a particular platform needs a PHY and not able to get
it. How will a user know if a particular controller is not working because it's
not able to get and initialize the PHYs? Don't you think in such cases it's
better to fail (and return from probe) because the controller will not work
anyway without the PHY?

Thanks
Kishon
