I too don't have any preference of the upstream path. Maybe i'll repost this series based on your v4 an then you can include them in your series if you like. BTW why is your series still RFC at v4?

As far as OMAP platform is concerned, calling phy_power_off() + phy_exit() shouldn't be a problem for suspend.
Not sure about other platforms as we can't really know for sure what they do in phy_exit().

If phy_power_on/off() and phy_init()/phy_exit() are always meant to be called together then what is the point of having 2 functions each for power up/down.
