That is not quite the tree you should be using, you should be using the
"net" tree, which is here:


and here are some useful pieces of information in the netdev FAQ:


Also, since this is not the version version of your patch, please make
sure your subject indicates this is not the first version, I have lost
count of the exact number of times you submitted this already (4?) so
this could be [PATCH net v5] in the subject or something like that.

Given you fix a bug please also provide an appropriate Fixes tag, which
should be:

Fixes: 466c5ac8bdf2 ("net: stmmac: create one debugfs dir per net-device")
