Yes, that needs fixing, thanks for mentioning that.

The best way is probably to make sure that your switch device appears
parented to the MDIO bus driver under /sys/class/mdio_bus/*mvmdio*.
Alternatively, if you see a message like:

DSA: switch 0 0 parsed

in your dmesg, that would also be indicative of using the new binding
and corresponding code.

Thanks a lot for trying that out!
