Subject: [PATCH net-next v2 1/8] dt-bindings: phy: dp83867: Describe how
 driver behaves w.r.t rgmii delay

Add a note to make it more clear how the driver behaves when "rgmii" vs
"rgmii-id", "rgmii-idrx", or "rgmii-idtx" interface modes are selected.

    Changes from v1:
      Clarify behavior may change to enforce no delay in "rgmii" mode
