Hi Florian,
We have listed down the platforms which will break for as they don’t have
the mdio / snps,dwmac-mdio node.
Arm32 spear* , Arm32 ox820*, arm32 rv1108, arc abilis* , arc axs10x*, arc
vdk_axs10x*, mips pistachio, arm64 rockchip/px30* There might be more
platforms.

For the platforms which neither have mdio nor snps,dwmac-mdio property in
dt, they will not enter the block.
plat->mdio_node will always be false for them. Which, essentially, preserves
the mdio variable Boolean value defined at the start of the function.

There is a proposal for this problem solution. You can refer it at :
