So there is no control of the RX delay?

That means PHY_INTERFACE_MODE_RGMII_ID and
PHY_INTERFACE_MODE_RGMII_RXID are not supported, and you should return
-EINVAL.

This is where we get into interesting backwards compatibility
issues. Are there any broken DT blobs with rgmii-id or rgmii-rxid,
which will break with such a change?
