These are not PHY properties. 

Looking at the code, it looks like these control delays the MAC
inserts. I don't see a binding document for these properties, so i've
no idea what 0x10 means. Before this driver moves out of staging,
these values should be changed to be in ns.

However, PHY_INTERFACE_MODE_RGMII_RXID would make sense if 0x10 is
sufficient to add the TX delay.

What the driver should however do is call of_of_get_phy_mode() to get
the phy-mode from the DT blob and pass that to of_phy_connect().
