So looking at "[PATCH v10 4/8] ata: libahci: allow to use multiple PHYs"
I see that currently the phy array indexes do not necessarily match the
port indexes. Since you already allocate the phys array at nports size,
I suggest simply making the array sparse, leaving in NULL entries for
unused ports, and adjusting enable / disable_phys to check for NULL
pointers. This way we still have a 1:1 way to map ports <-> phys if
we want to do something with phys on a per port basis in the future.

Note please also add a check that reg < nports so that we don't use
the array out of bounds if there is an error in the dts.
