This is not right for libphy either, phydev->supported must reflect
that you support Gigabit or not.

Since ethoc supports libphy, there really is no reason not to
implement the ethtool_{get,set}_settings callbacks using
phy_mii_ioctl().

All drivers are currently modifying phydev->advertising and
phydev->supported directly, most of them do it correctly as far as I
checked. It does make some sense to add a helper function though.

This should be a preliminary patch to this patchset, so you first
introduce the function, then use it in the driver, but the idea looks
good. There is room for updating quite some drivers out there since
those used to modify phydev->advertising and phydev->supported
directly without using an accessor.
