What do you mean by 'pure' DT system? Only EDK2 based firmware exists
for this platform, and it can be configured to boot either in DT or in
ACPI mode. In both cases, it will pass the same, incorrect PHY mode,
and in both cases, the firmware will already have configured the PHY
correctly.

So what I propose to do is drop the handling of the [mandatory]
phy-mode device property from the netsec driver (which is really only
used by this board). As we don't really need a phy-mode to begin with,
and given that firmware exists in the field that passes the wrong
value, the only option I see for passing a value here is to use a
different, *optional* DT property (force-phy-mode or
phy-mode-override) that takes the place of phy-mode. For ACPI boot,
you will just need to fix your firmware if you are using a different
PHY configuration.
