For PHYs, we used to have phy and phy-device as property names, but the
modern name is "phy-handle". I think we should do the same here, so I
would suggest using "pcs-handle".

We actually already have LX2160A platforms using "pcs-handle", (see
Documentation/devicetree/bindings/net/fsl,qoriq-mc-dpmac.yaml) so we're
in danger of ending up with multiple property names describing the same
