- phy-handle is not listed anywhere, yet, present in the example you give.

In that specific case, 'phy-handle' becomes an optional property.

Better refer to Documentation/devicetree/bindings/ethernet/phy.txt
which contains a more exhaustive binding description for Ethernet PHY
nodes.

Since you have mutliple values in your 'reg' property, you could also
provide an optional 'reg-names' which documents what the register
ranges are about.

This PHY node is missing a compatible string as described in
Documentation/devicetree/bindings/net/ethernet/phy.txt. Your binding
should also link to that documentation for
