I think I replied too early. Will phy_probe() be called at all if the
PHY is not detected on the MDIO bus?
If not then this approach is not sufficient for some of the TI boards.
e.g. am57xx-idk.
I think the reset needs to be done at MDIO bus level before it enumerates
the PHYs so that we know the PHY is in an enumerable state.
