Revert "net: phy: Set the driver when registering an MDIO bus device"
Commit a71e3c37960ce5f9 ("net: phy: Set the driver when registering an MDIO bus device") caused the following regression on the fec driver: root@imx6qsabresd:~# echo mem > /sys/power/state PM: Syncing filesystems ... done. Freezing user space processes ... (elapsed 0.003 seconds) done. Freezing remaining freezable tasks ... (elapsed 0.002 seconds) done.

The problem with the original commit is explained by Russell King: "It has the effect (as can be seen from the oops) of attaching the MDIO bus device (itself is a bus-less device) to the platform driver, which means that if the platform driver supports power management, it will be called to power manage the MDIO bus device. Moreover, drivers do not expect to be called for power management operations for devices which they haven't probed, and certainly not for devices which aren't part of the same bus that the driver is registered against."
