This series gets direct phy register accesses out of the generic code
path. This is necessary for phys which have a different register
layout not handled correctly by the generic code. Also the phy link
status check is moved to a poller callback. With this we get periodic
link status updates printed on the console.

      net: phy: introduce phy_aneg_done
      net: phy: Use xzalloc for small allocations
      net: phy: don't use 'dev' as name for variables of type struct phy_device
      net: phy: Use poller for periodic link check
