This doesn't reflect the behaviour of phylink_of_phy_connect() - it is
*not* a cleanup of what is there, which is:

                if (!phy_node) {
                        if (pl->cfg_link_an_mode == MLO_AN_PHY)
                                return -ENODEV;
                        return 0;
                }

which does:

- if there is a PHY node, find the PHY and connect it.
- if there is no PHY node, then:
   + if we are expecting a PHY to be present, return an error.
   + otherwise, it is not a problem, continue.

That is very important behaviour - it allows drivers to call
phylink_*_phy_connect() without knowing whether there should or should
not be a PHY - and keeps that knowledge within phylink.  It means
network drivers don't have to parse the firmware to find out if there's
a fixed link or SFP cage attached, and decide whether to call these
functions.

I think we need to go further with this, and we need to have
phylink_fwnode_phy_connect() functionally identical to
phylink_of_phy_connect() for DT-based fwnodes.  Doing so will avoid
introducing errors such as the one you've added above.

The only difference between these two is that DT has a number of
legacy properties - these can be omitted if the fwnode is not a DT
node.

Remember that fwnode is compatible with DT, so fwnode_phy_find_device()
can internally decide whether to look for the ACPI property or one of
the three DT properties.

It also means that phylink_of_phy_connect() can become:

int phylink_of_phy_connect(struct phylink *pl, struct device_node *dn,
                           u32 flags)
{
        return phylink_fwnode_phy_connect(pl, of_fwnode_handle(dn), flags);
}
