PHY_INTERFACE_MODE_2500BASEX is the PHY mode whereas PHY_MODE_2500SGMII
is the mode used by the common PHY driver (i.e. the one configuring the
serdes lanes).

There's no PHY_INTERFACE_MODE_2500SGMII mode.

Sure, I can add a comment to state this function is a translation
between the net PHY mode and the generic PHY mode (it's a n-to-1
translation).

Thanks!
