Sure, I can do that in a v2 of the patch along with the more detailed
explanation below.

I have a ksz8795 switch.

Without the patch:

ksz8795-switch spi3.1 ade1 (uninitialized): PHY [dsa-0.1:03] driver [Generic PHY]
ksz8795-switch spi3.1 ade2 (uninitialized): PHY [dsa-0.1:04] driver [Generic PHY]

With the patch:

ksz8795-switch spi3.1 ade1 (uninitialized): PHY [dsa-0.1:03] driver [Micrel KSZ87XX Switch]
ksz8795-switch spi3.1 ade2 (uninitialized): PHY [dsa-0.1:04] driver [Micrel KSZ87XX Switch]

I looked at the original commit 8b95599c55ed24b36cf44a4720067cfe67edbcb4, but
it couldn't ever have worked.

ksz8051_ksz8795_match_phy_device() uses the parameter ksz_phy_id to discriminate
whether it was called from ksz8051_match_phy_device() or from ksz8795_match_phy_device()
but since PHY_ID_KSZ87XX is the same value as PHY_ID_KSZ8051, this doesn't do anything.

Need to pass a different value to discriminate.
