of_mdiobus_register() can be changed. One option: If the caller knows
what it wants to happen in the case of no interrupt, then it can be
added as an argument to of_mdiobus_register(). No need to work around
this in an ugly way.

Is setting the irq to PHY_POLL something that should be done for the
entire bus, or only for a handful of PHYs?
