Thanks for your review.

Agree that we need an ack from ACPI people.
However, I don't think it is a completely new way as similar acpi approach to
get phy-handle is already in place.
Please see this:
https://elixir.bootlin.com/linux/v5.7-rc3/source/drivers/net/ethernet/apm/xgene/xgene_enet_hw.c#L832

Please let me know, if you see more work than the ones you pointed out in your
review comments on previous patches.

Thanks
Calvin
