Optional means you may or may not have the entries

I would prefer to wrap the DT reading with the interface type check.

if (phydev->interface == PHY_INTERFACE_MODE_RGMII_TXID ||
phydev->interface == PHY_INTERFACE_MODE_RGMII_ID  )

 	ret = of_property_read_u32(of_node, "ti,tx-internal-delay",
 				   &dp83867->tx_id_delay);
	if (ret)

goto invalid_dt;

Otherwise this continues to mandate that you need to declare all the DT entries
when in fact you may only have to declare 1.

And if the other interfaces are declared then DT entries are ignored.  And configuring
internal delay is not required per section 8.9 footnote 3 of the data sheet.
