Yes, it is better than previous solution.
But add new common API in phy_device.c is much better like:
1. add a flag called "PHY_RST_AFTER_CLK_EN" to the flags variable in struct phy_driver, all phy driver that need reset can set the flag.
2. add new common api interface phy_reset_after_clk_enable() in phy_device.c driver
3. add reset gpio descriptor for common phy device driver.
4. then any mac driver can directly call the common interface .phy_reset_after_clk_enable().

That is only my suggestion, maybe there have better idea.
Thanks.
