I am testing ACPI based device for dwmac-dwc-qos-eth controller. Also found
that " phy_node " structure used across other controllers (dwmac-rk, dwmac-sun8i)
plat->phy_node = of_parse_phandle(np, "phy-handle", 0);

It will require changes in other drivers  and testing them. I don't have hardware
for other controllers. 
I am trying to add minimal change what can be tested in context of dwmac-dwc-qos-eth.

Thanks
Ajay
