If we don't enable FS_ENET we get build issues:

arch/powerpc/platforms/built-in.o: In function `ep8248e_mdio_probe':
arch/powerpc/platforms/82xx/ep8248e.c:129: undefined reference to `alloc_mdio_bitbang'
arch/powerpc/platforms/82xx/ep8248e.c:143: undefined reference to `mdiobus_register'

How is this possible? CONFIG_EP8248E selects CONFIG_MDIO_BITBANG.

If CONFIG_PHYLIB=m however, that doesn't make any difference, because
vmlinuz is trying to use a symbol which now lives in a module.

The mdiobus_register make sense, I'm not sure get why alloc_mdio_bitbang is undefined.
