The platform data assumes there is a network device named "eth0" as the
parent device, yes I know this is terrible, but unfortunately we don't
have anything better at this point, though that could certainly change
that to take a proper struct device reference in the future.
I am assuming that you don't have such a network device named "eth0" in
your system? You can also look at the less than 360 LOCs of the driver
and find out where your problem is, this is not mlxsw :)
