They are not reserved according to 802.3-2015 and 802.3-2012:

802.3-2012: 45.2.1.6.1 PMA/PMD type selection (1.7.5:0)
802.3-2015: 45.2.1.6.3 PMA/PMD type selection (1.7.5:0)

which defines the type selection as occupying six bits, but the definition
in the UAPI mdio.h header file is:

#define MDIO_PMA_CTRL2_TYPE             0x000f  /* PMA/PMD type selection */

I presume that this is according to an earlier version of 802.3.
Changing this definition may cause userspace and/or kernel regressions,
so I propose something like:

#define MDIO_PMA_CTRL2_TYPE_2012        0x003f  /* PMA/PMD type selection */

instead.  The rest of the reserved entries are not specified as being
part of the type selection (yet) so it would be inappropriate to change
their value.
