I'd suggest that doesn't work for a lot of hardware. It won't work for
the Macchiatobin for example, where there are two Clause 45 NBASE-T
PHYs on one MDIO bus.

The same is likely true on the LX2160A - there can be multiple ethernet
interfaces, but IIRC only two external MDIO buses that one can hang
PHYs off of.
