I now see the source of our/my misunderstanding. I'm working on a 4.19
kernel, which doesn't have your recent patch:

commit daf3ddbe11a2ff74c95bc814df8e5fe3201b4cb5
Author: Heiner Kallweit <hkallweit1@gmail.com>
Date: Fri May 10 22:11:26 2019 +0200

net: phy: realtek: add missing page operations


That's what I intended to do for RTL8211E, no need to overwrite it
with the extended paging.

Thanks

Matthias
