The attachment was due to us enabling DMARC support on our email system to help decrease spam, but
we can disable that.  I'll resend the patch later today.

The phy type in question is wireless phy devices.  Is just putting 'wireless' in front of it
sufficient to make it more understandable?

The patch is helpful to me because if I remove and replace a USB wireless NIC, or reload another wifi driver,
then by default it will change name, from /kernel/debug/ieee80211/phy1 to phy2, for instance.  My software wants
the names to stay the same to make it easier to have a persistent representation of a 'radio'.
