In rev-2, I'll add more info on this.
During the MDIO bus driver initialization, PHYs on this bus are probed
using the _ADR object as shown below and are registered on the mdio bus.

Scope(\_SB.MDI0)
{
Device(PHY1) {
Name (_ADR, 0x1)
} // end of PHY1

Device(PHY2) {
Name (_ADR, 0x2)
} // end of PHY2
}

Later, during the MAC driver initialization, the registered PHY devices
have to be retrieved from the mdio bus. For this, MAC driver needs reference
to the previously registered PHYs which are provided using reference to the
device as {\_SB.MDI0.PHY1}.

Sure. I'll refer "Documentation/firmware-guide/acpi/DSD-properties-rules.rst"

I'll do that.

I thought I introduced it earlier in this document as a property. Ofcourse,
more info needs to be added as you mentioned. Other than that am I missing
something?

I've a correction here.
Based on referring some more documents, I'll be using
Package (2) {"phy-handle",\_SB.MDI0.PHY1}
instead of
Package (2) {"phy-handle", Package (){\_SB.MDI0.PHY1}}
.

I'll explain it more clearly.

In rev-2, I'll explain the relation between these pieces. What I tried to show
is that the MDIO bus has an SoC component(mdio controller) and a platform
component(PHYs on the mdiobus).

In the MAC nodes, the PHYs are referenced and that is done using the "phy-handle"
property.

Thanks
Calvin
