MIPS: MTX-1: Make au1000_eth probe all PHY addresses [Linux 2.6.38]

This Linux kernel change "MIPS: MTX-1: Make au1000_eth probe all PHY addresses" is included in the Linux 2.6.38 release. This change is authored by Florian Fainelli <florian [at] openwrt.org> on Sun Feb 27 19:53:53 2011 +0100. The commit for this change in Linux stable tree is bf3a1eb (patch).

MIPS: MTX-1: Make au1000_eth probe all PHY addresses

When au1000_eth probes the MII bus for PHY address, if we do not set
au1000_eth platform data's phy_search_highest_address, the MII probing
logic will exit early and will assume a valid PHY is found at address 0.
For MTX-1, the PHY is at address 31, and without this patch, the link
detection/speed/duplex would not work correctly.
