I would not call this a broken PHY. It is a question of board
design. If you have shorter tracks, you need a delay. If you have long
tracks, you don't. Hence the four RGMII modes, so you can select if
the delay is needed or not, depending on your board design.

Design feature.

Please remove all reference to bug.

Do we know that the TX lines do have a delay after making this change?
We need to be careful here. We will get into a mess if this is
actually RGMII not RGMII_TXID, and somebody designs a board which

You don't appear to use of_node, nor dev. Please remove, along with
the header file.
