We don't have to solve this just yet, but this is the type of logic that
we want to be able to change in the future, there are a number of things
in the current ethtool code where, say, we always prefer PHY time
stamping over MAC time stamping when there should be a choice if both
are supported.

I don't know if you maintain a TODO for after when this patch series get
merged, but we may want to start one :)
