Maybe rename the property to something like rmii-ref-clk-25mhz-active-high
then? Also you should probably make it more explicit that this is a
hardware property and not for adjusting the clock.

It's not very nice from Micrel to create Phys with exactly the same
device id but the meaning of this bit reversed.
