The implementation does that, I will update the binding text to reflect

This is basically the same thing adapted for the page select register
specific to Marvell PHYs.

10M/100M/1G PHYs from different manufacturers and even within a single
manufacturer have a wide variety of ways to multiplex many registers
into the 5 bit addressing scheme allowed by clause 22. The Marvell
scheme already implemented doesn't work for Broadcom.

For clause 45, there are more address bits...

A clause 45 specific property might work for *all* 10G PHYs, the same
cannot be said for clause 22, hence my idea to put 'c45' in the name

There are three portions to a clause 45 address:

phy_id: Denoted by the "reg" property is a 5-bit value that identifies
a particular PHY on the MDIO bus.

device id: Really a sub-device within a given PHY, another 5-bit value
contained in the first cell of the proposed register init sequence.
Clause 45 defines several different standard device ids.

register id: a 16-bit address that identifies a particular 16-bit
register within the 'device' (or sub-device if you will.

Does that answer your question?

In theory we could compose the 5-bit device id and 16-bit register
address into a single 32-bit cell in the init sequence property, but I
chose to have them separate.

Yes, I will make that change.
