As the code derives straight from of_mdio.c, there is absolutely no
deviation from Documentation/devicetree/bindings/net/mdio.txt.

ACPI has its own specification, the newest one is 6.2
http://www.uefi.org/sites/default/files/resources/ACPI_6_2.pdf

It is pretty likely, that if we establish a generic solution for the
MDIO bus, a short section about it may probably require adding to
above - for now I see none.

Best regards,
Marcin
