> gcc found a reference to an uninitialized variable in the error handling
> of bcm_enet_open, introduced by a recent cleanup:
> drivers/net/ethernet/broadcom/bcm63xx_enet.c: In function 'bcm_enet_open'
> drivers/net/ethernet/broadcom/bcm63xx_enet.c:1129:2: warning: 'phydev' may be 
> used uninitialized in this function [-Wmaybe-uninitialized]
> This makes the use of that variable conditional, so we only reference it
> here after it has been used before. Unlike my normal patches, I have not
> build-tested this one, as I don't currently have mips test in my
> randconfig setup.
