I will try with syscon driver

I have searched for txdelay in Documentation, and found a few driver that give the units (us/ps).
But in that case, the value in ps/us must be found in a table indexed by the Xxdelay value.
So the settings seems always a raw number, and for sun8i-emac nothing in user manual could help to find what each value is/related to.

So the good value is either found by "try and test" or "copy the value found in fex file".
