I moved those over to the second patch on the request of Andrew Lunn,
who wanted the phylink change to be separate from the addition of the
SGMII changes. This first patch should result in no change of behaviour,
just the move to phylink.

It doesn't seem to be available from my reading of the data sheet.

My reading of Vladimir's mail is I can set pcs_poll to get that
functionality, and from the data sheet the link detection is keyed off a
separate bit than the mac link down piece so I think I'm ok there.

Thanks for the review. I'll get a new version out soon.
