Hi Alexandre

Do you mean mscc_miim_read() will return -EIO if there is no device on
the bus at the address trying to be read? Most devices just return
0xffff because there is a pull up on the data line, nothing is driving
it, so all 1's are read.

It sounds like the correct fix is for get_phy_id() to look at the
error code for mdiobus_read(bus, addr, MII_PHYSID1). If it is EIO and
maybe ENODEV, set *phy_id to 0xffffffff and return. The scan code
should then do the correct thing.
