There are 2 asix drivers in the kernel, they are drivers/net/usb/asix
and drivers/net/phy/asix. It leads to the compilation race condition
that one overwrites the other asix.mod in .tmp_version directory.
This affects the USB dongle if the "phy" one wins.

The same name asix has been introduced since v4.18-rc1 by this commit
   31dd83b96641 net-next: phy: new Asix Electronics PHY driver
the new commit fix this issue by renaming it
   a9520543b123 net: phy: rename Asix Electronics PHY driver

Verified on my own ASIX USB Ethernet dongle.

[Regression Potential]
Low, it only rename the module name, no code change.
