I don't think MLO_AN_PHY is sufficient? If it's a fixed link we'll have
MLO_AN_FIXED and that could be talking to a PHY?

The logic I've gone for is assuming that a port hooked up to the CPU
should look like a PHY, and otherwise we're hooked up to a PHY so we're
acting as a MAC. That means we don't cope with the situation that we're
hooked up to something that isn't the CPU but wants us to look like a
PHY, but I don't think we have any current way to describe that.

Sure. I'll move the mask inside the if block too in that case, so we
don't change the setting if we get fed something invalid.
