Hi Claudiu

It is not well defined where to put phy nodes. Some drivers do allow
them directly in the MAC node, some drivers optionally allow an mdio
sub-node, others enforce an mdio sub-node. The name of the sub-node is
also not well defined.

So just documenting that the mdio sub-node is mandatory will help
people writing device trees for their boards.
