How about also adding device_type="network" as required here, so you
inherit the attributes like "local-mac-address".

I would also suggest adding a call to of_get_mac_address() so you
can read the address out of the device tree when it is not configured
in hardware. Today, the driver relies on a module parameter or
platform_data on hardware with a mac address set.

The other information that is currently encoded in platform_data
is the phy mode. How about adding a property that enables RMII mode
when present?
