The patch exports mdiobus_register_board_info() so that should solve
your problem here, and I did verify this with a loadable module that
references mdiobus_register_board_info() in that case.

Your patch is fine in premise except that you are making CONFIG_MDIO
encompass both drivers/net/mdio.c and
drivers/net/phy/mdio_{bus,device}.c and these do share the same header
(for better or for worse), but are not quite dealing with MDIO at the
same level. drivers/net/mdio.c is more like PHYLIB for the old-style,
pre mdiobus() drivers helper functions.

I like it that you made MDIO_BOARDINFO separate, and that is probably a
patch I should incorporate in the other patch splitting things up, see
below though for the remainder of the changes.

This is too broad, the only part that is worth in drivers/net/phy/ of
pulling out of drivers/net/phy/ is what I tried to extract: mdio bus and
device. There are some bad inter-dependencies between that code and
phy_device.c and phy.c which makes it hard to split and make that part
completely standalone for now.

The only part that is truly valuable to non-Ethernet PHY devices is the
MDIO bus/device registration part, which is available in my patch with
CONFIG_MDIO_DEVICE, and which probably should not depend from
NETDEVICES, so the other part of your patch makes sense too here.

Thanks!
