A few comments on the binding and the code, sorry for this late review.

us is micro seconds, uS is micro siemens.

Could we use dev_err(&bus->dev) here to better identify which MDIO bus
is returning the problem?

Should we somehow "unwind" the reset lines we were able to successfully
take out of reset and therefore put back into reset state? How about
mdiobus_unregister()? Should we have similar code there, if not for
correctness to be more power efficient?

Does that work even if the polarity of the reset line is active low?

Thanks!
