Subject[net-next RFC PATCH 00/14] net: phy: Support DT PHY package
Idea of this big series is to introduce the concept of PHY package in DT
and generalize the support of it by PHY driver.

The concept of PHY package is nothing new and is already a thing in the
kernel with the API phy_package_join/leave/read/write.

The main idea of those API is to permit the PHY to have a shared global
data and to run probe/config only once for the PHY package. There are
various example of this already in the kernel with the mscc, bcm54140
mediatek ge and micrle driver and they all follow the same pattern.

What is currently lacking is describing this in DT and better reference
the PHY in charge of global configuration of the PHY package. For the
already present PHY, the implementation is simple enough with only one
PHY having the required regs to apply global configuration.

This can be ok for simple PHY package but some Qcom PHY package on
""modern"" SoC have more complex implementation. One example is the PHY
for qca807x where some global regs are present in the so-called "combo"
port and everything about psgmii calibration is placed in a 5th port in
the PHY package.

Given these additional thing, the original phy_package API are extended
with support for multiple global PHY for configuration. Each PHY driver
will have an enum of the ID for the global PHY to reference and is
required to pass to the read/write function.

On top of this, it's added correct DT support for describing PHY

One example is this:

ethernet-phy-package {
compatible = "ethernet-phy-package";
#address-cells = <1>;
#size-cells = <0>;

global-phys = <&phy4>;
global-phy-names = "base";

ethernet-phy@1 {
compatible = "ethernet-phy-ieee802.3-c22";
reg = <1>;

phy4: ethernet-phy@4 {
compatible = "ethernet-phy-ieee802.3-c22";
reg = <4>;

The mdio parse functions are changed to address for this additional
special node, the function is changed to simply detect this node and
search also in this.

If this is detected phy core will join each PHY present in the node and
use (if defined) the additional info in the PHY driver to probe/config
once the PHY package.

Some PHY package also supports a single phy-mode for every PHY in the
PHY package. This is also supported and can be described in DT by
defining the phy-mode in the PHY package node.

I hope this implementation is clean enough as I expect more and more of
these configuration to appear in the future.
