4.9-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.


From: Geert Uytterhoeven <geert+rene...@glider.be>

[ Upstream commit 5f5c5449acad0cd3322e53e1ac68c044483b0aa5 ]

The MDIO initialization failure message is printed using the network
device, before it has been registered, leading to:

     (null): failed to initialise MDIO

Use the platform device instead to fix this:

    sh-eth ee700000.ethernet: failed to initialise MDIO

Fixes: daacf03f0bbfefee ("sh_eth: Register MDIO bus before registering the 
network device")
