Looks still wrong. I stumbled over the original bug because in fedora,
CONFIG_PHYLIB=m. When you make PPC_PASEMI_MDIO a bool, it will
force PHYLIB=y, which is potentially undesired.

Can you make this a modular driver (tristate)?

Instead of making it select PHYLIB directly, it might be more
straightforward to make PPC_PASEMI_MDIO depend on PHYLIB
and have the actual network driver select both PPC_PASEMI_MDIO
