As i said, this is not your driver, for you customers. It is the Linux
kernel driver. Please drop all references to your customers. If you
need to address anybody, it should be the Linux community as a whole,
or maybe the users of this driver.

I would much more prefer something like...

The over voltage interrupt is enabled, but if it every occurs, there is
no code to make use of it. So remove the pointless enabling of it. It
can re-enabled when HWMON support is added. For the same reason,
enabling of the interrupts DP83811_RX_ERR_HF_INT_EN,
DP83811_UNDERVOLTAGE_INT_EN is also removed, since there is no code
which acts on these interrupts.

And update the patch to fit.
