The "ref_clk_src" clock is not really going to the phy block. After
the hardware documents, we decided to remove this.
On the SoC, this is an external clock (outside of the clock
controller) that comes
to a clock pad that feeds few clock tx blocks. These blocks supply the reference
clock to each IP blocks.
Output of these tx blocks is what we refer to as "ref" clock in our bindings.
