I've also checked the Aria 10 documentation and bit 5 is also RW.
The following options are documented and supported
     1000: CSR clock/4
     1001: CSR clock/6
     1010: CSR clock/8
     1011: CSR clock/10
     1100: CSR clock/12
     1101: CSR clock/14
     1110: CSR clock/16
     1111: CSR clock/18
They do mention that these values will probably be outside the IEEE 802.3 specified range.

But there's at least a couple of cores out there where GENMASK(5,2) is valid.
Can't say if anyone is using that setting thou.
