Since this is an IP block that people can modify due to its open
source nature, it would have been good to define a revision register
or such which would allow software to gate specific code based on that
revision.

5Mhz management clock? Can't you make it work with the standard 2.5Mhz
management clock? Is not there a risk not to be able to "talk" to some
PHY chips out there which do not support > 2.5Mhz management clock?

Since this is an ethoc specific property, should it be prefixed with "ethoc,"?
