In linux-next/next-20191119
there is no network device.

On Raspbian you can find for RPi4:

compatible = "brcm,genet-v5"
relating to Linux drivers/net/ethernet/broadcom/genet/bcmgenet.c
CONFIG_BCMGENET "Broadcom GENET internal MAC support"

compatible = "ethernet-phy-ieee802.3-c22";
relating to Linux drivers/of/of_mdio.c.
CONFIG_OF_MDIO OpenFirmware MDIO bus (Ethernet PHY) accessors

compatible = "brcm,genet-mdio-v5";
relating to Linux drivers/net/phy/mdio-bcm-unimac.c
CONFIG_MDIO_BCM_UNIMAC "Broadcom UniMAC MDIO bus controller"

So wouldn't we need all three drivers?

Maybe Joe can tell us.

Best regards
