Nope. I had no idea it was hiding there.

Not really. It documents some godawful hack that recycled the platform
device -based driver and provided a DT binding for it, just for PPC.

I cant even *find* anything that implements code for whatever
"marvell,mv64360-mdio" might be. I'm sure it might exist somewhere.

I hope not. I don't really want to touch that stuff at all. If it works
the way it
is, then it can stay that way. If the PPC folk want to send patches to
add the
properties they use to the driver, then they can do. I'll send an email
way and see if they want to join in.

for it to be broken up into ethernet and mdio drivers, so that we can
get rid
of all this shared_smi craziness... But that's for another patch series.
