The PHY reset *has* to be performed at the MDIO bus driver level so that they
can be pin-strap configured correctly and be detected during MDIO bus scan.

- We have boards where PHYs won't be detected if RESET is not done before the scan. (due to invalid h/w pin-strapping config)
- We have boards where a single GPIO line controls reset of all PHYs on the bus.

Due to these reasons the RESET control lies with the MDIO bus driver.
