What I have is a PCIe intel network card with phy, that is wired to a
mv88e6240 switch. The network card is exposed as normal network device,
so phy is enabled when the interface is brought up. The 'cpu' port
for mv88e6240 has an integrated phy, that needs to be enabled.

Your boards must be different, since mv88e6xxx is being reset during
probe(). So even if the 'cpu' phy was enabled before driver probe(),
it would be disabled afterwards.

Ok, I assumed, that PHY_INTERFACE_MODE_NA means "no explicit
configuration found, use implicit configuration". E.g. for
mv88e6xxx the downstream ports are not configured in DT, but
their PHY is enabled.

That's why I put the new code into

if (of_phy_is_fixed_link(...)) {
<<< old code >>>
} else {
<<< new code >>>
}

I agree, that the function name dsa_port_fixed_link_register_of() is
a bit confusing with the added code. I actually added this to
dsa_cpu_dsa_setup() and with the rebase to current master it ended
up there.

The phy is part of mv88e6240, which is being reset during probe.
So the phy is powered down and DSA is not functional except for
phy information of downstream ports. The PCIe network interface
does not detect a carrier.
