SubjectCrashes in -next due to 'phy: add support for a reset-gpio specification'

my xtensa qemu tests crash in -next as follows.

Bisect points to commit da47b4572056 ("phy: add support for a reset-gpio specification").
Bisect log is attached. Reverting the patch fixes the problem.

I think there may be a number of problems, all of them exposed by the patch
but really separate.

GPIOLIB is not configured in my test case, meaning gpiod_get_optional()
returns -ENOSYS, and phy_probe() thus returns an error. Question here is if
it is really appropriate for the XXX_optional() gpiolib functions to return
an error if GPIOLIB is not configured. Either case, result is that pretty
much all phy registrations will now fail if GPIOLIB is not configured.

Also, I suspect that there may be a bug in the error handling path
of ethoc_probe(). No idea what exactly is wrong, though. Other drivers
use pretty much the same code sequence for mdio registration and associated
error handling.

Last but not least, something seems to be wrong with the use of dev_err()
with &netdev->dev if register_netdev() has not yet been called. Maybe someone
has some insight ?

Test scripts and root file system used for the test are available at
