If you insist on doing static configuration in a phylink callback, sure,
the comment was mostly about not accessing directly this struct dsa_port
member. It might change in the future, and the less refactoring required,
the better.

Yes, but please consider existing device trees for this driver. I see
qcom-ipq8064-rb3011.dts and imx6dl-yapp4-common.dtsi, and neither use
explicit rx-internal-delay-ps or tx-internal-delay-ps properties. So
changing the driver to look at just those and ignore "rgmii-id" will
break those device trees, which is not pleasant. What would work is to
search first for *-internal-delay-ps, and then revert to determining the
delays based on the phy-mode, for compatibility.
