Right. It would also be good to change 'depends on ARCH_STI'
into 'depends on ARCH_STI || COMPILE_TEST', but only if it
actually compiles on x86.

Note that currently both providers and users of the PHY API
use 'select GENERIC_PHY', which probably not what we want:
only providers (like this one) should 'select' it, while
drivers using this interface could either 'depends on
GENERIC_PHY' or leave out the Kconfig dependency entirely.

Adding 'depends on' for drivers using the interface might
be cleaner, but can result in dependency loops.
