Subject: [PATCH] r8169: fix wrong PHY ID issue with RTL8168dp
commit 62bdc8fd1c21d4263ebd18bec57f82532d09249f upstream.
As reported in [0] at least one RTL8168dp version has problems
establishing a link. This chip version has an integrated RTL8211b PHY,
however the chip seems to report a wrong PHY ID, resulting in a wrong
PHY driver (for Generic Realtek PHY) being loaded.
Work around this issue by adding a hook to r8168dp_2_mdio_read()
for returning the correct PHY ID.
