In-between the MAC & PHY there can be a mode converter, which converts one
mode to another (e.g. GMII-to-RGMII).

The converter, can be passive (i.e. no driver or OS/SW information
required), so the MAC & PHY need to be configured differently.

For the `stmmac` driver, this is implemented via a `mac-mode` property in
the device-tree, which configures the MAC into a certain mode, and for the
PHY a `phy_interface` field will hold the mode of the PHY. The mode of the
PHY will be passed to the PHY and from there-on it work in a different
mode. If unspecified, the default `phy-mode` will be used for both.

This change documents the 'mac-mode' property that was introduced in the
'stmmac' driver to support passive mode converters that can sit in-between
the MAC & PHY.

Is this an array because {min,max}Items is for arrays? It should be 
defined as a string with possible values.

As this property is the same as another, you can do this:

$ref: ethernet-controller.yaml#/properties/phy-connection-type

Unless only a small subset of those values are valid here, then you may 
want to list them here.

Ack.
Thank you.

Will investigate and re-spin.

Looking at '$ref: ethernet-controller.yaml#/properties/phy-connection-type'
it looks like 'mac-mode' could cover almost all 'phy-connection-type'
except for a few (1 or 2). The 'dwmac' driver is pretty complex/big.

There was a note that Andrew made on a previous change, that we could have
a 'mac-mode' (similar to 'phy-mode') and that could become generic (either
in phylib or maybe somewhere else in netdev).

In any case, the conclusion [from my side] would be that
'$ref: ethernet-controller.yaml#/properties/phy-connection-type'
could work, and be sufficiently future-proof.

Thanks
