I have not looked deeply at it. But is not it really possible to declare
PHY node in DTS file with backward compatible manner? Or cannot Rob help
with it (maybe there was similar issue in past with other driver)?

I was fixing something similar, address space defined in DTS was used by
two HW blocks: clock and UART. And I was able to make both DTS file and
driver backward compatible.
