 If I am writing a network MAC driver, for hardware that has a phy
that is already supported, if I provide the appropriate mdio_read() and
mdio_write() calls to access the phy registers, and setup my config to
include phylib and drivers for my specific phy,  what else do I have to
take care of with respect to the phy within my driver ?
	Are there some resources, howto's, examples, ... demonstrating 
how to use phylib ?
