The "default" setting also disables and powers down the internal PHY.
I think that's a good thing? The naming could be better.

Does it actually fire, i.e. pull the interrupt line on the GIC? Or is it just
the interrupt state showing an event? IIRC some other hardware blocks have this
behavior, such as the timer.
