I follow you reasoning, but generic phy is the new kid on the
block. It is well established that Ethernet PHYs are called
<MANUFACTURER>_PHY.

If you do want to consider generic phy, the logical name would be
ROCKCHIP_PHY_PHY, since generic phy postfixes with _SATA, _USB, _PCIE,
etc. But that does leave an issues when we have an Ethernet PHY which
needs a generic PHY. In some sense, SERDES could be considered as
something supported by a generic PHY...
