Marek,

Can you give this a shot?

This is not the main fix for the case you brought up, but it should
fix your issue as a side effect of fixing another issue.

The main fix for your issue would be to teach fw_devlink that
phy-handle always points to the actual DT node that'll become a device
even if it doesn't have a compatible property. I'll send that out
later.
