:-(

It is very common to have an mdio node within the MAC node, for example imx6sx-sdb.dtsi

&fec1 {
pinctrl-names = "default";
pinctrl-0 = <&pinctrl_enet1>;
phy-supply = <&reg_enet_3v3>;
phy-mode = "rgmii";
phy-handle = <&ethphy1>;
status = "okay";

mdio {
#address-cells = <1>;
#size-cells = <0>;

ethphy1: ethernet-phy@1 {
reg = <1>;
};

ethphy2: ethernet-phy@2 {
reg = <2>;
};
};
};

&fec2 {
pinctrl-names = "default";
pinctrl-0 = <&pinctrl_enet2>;
phy-mode = "rgmii";
phy-handle = <&ethphy2>;
status = "okay";
};

This even has the two phys on one bus, as you described...
