That helper operates on the PHY device, not on the MAC device.
Cfr. what I stated in the cover letter:

This can be considered the MAC counterpart of commit 9150069bf5fc0e86
("dt-bindings: net: Add tx and rx internal delays"), which applies to
the PHY. Note that unlike commit 92252eec913b2dd5 ("net: phy: Add a
helper to return the index for of the internal delay"), no helpers are
provided to parse the DT properties, as so far there is a single user
only, which supports only zero or a single fixed value. Of course such
helpers can be added later, when the need arises, or when deemed useful
otherwise.
