Actually I didn't find anything related to the temperature measurement
in the datasheet I have. For the 6390 there is a dedicated datsheet for
the PHY part for the 6352 it is part of the same datasheet.

After a second look I think I don't have anything related to the PHY
part in the datasheets.

What I wanted to do was to test 6390 and 6352 temperature related
functions and to see if one of them worked. That's how I realized it was
not possible to do it with dsa2.

Thanks for this answers I understand it a little better now.
