Sure, I am admittedly quite clueless about phylink in particular, and found the available information quite daunting.
So I tried my best in looking at what other drivers do. From what I got there is that you speed=-1 should be ignored, but the other fields still handled.
Also I was somewhat puzzled, as I was expecting "mode" being MLO_AN_INBAND. But in fact it's called twice with MLO_AN_PHY, and mac_pcs_get_state() never gets called:

[  166.516583] xilinx_axienet 7fe00000.ethernet eth0: PHY [axienet-7fe00000:01] driver [Generic PHY]
[  166.547309] xilinx_axienet 7fe00000.ethernet eth0: configuring for phy/sgmii link mode
[  166.572343] axienet_mac_config(mode=0, speed=-1, duplex=255, pause=16, link=0, an_en=1)
udhcpc: sending discover
[  168.652152] axienet_mac_config(mode=0, speed=-1, duplex=255, pause=0, link=1, an_en=0)
[  168.683538] xilinx_axienet 7fe00000.ethernet eth0: Link is Up - Unknown/Unknown - flow control off
[  168.712560] IPv6: ADDRCONF(NETDEV_CHANGE): eth0: link becomes ready
udhcpc: sending discover
udhcpc: sending select for 10.1.x.y
udhcpc: lease of 10.1.x.y obtained, lease time 691200

I was just wondering if the DT description is giving Linux a wrong impression, but I have phy-mode set to sgmii, also just tried phy-connection-type on top of that. The DT snippet is the same as the example in patch 14. The PHY is a Marvell 88E1111, connected via SGMII.
 
I would be grateful for any advice!

Cheers,
Andre.
