According to opensig, this functionality should be present on all new T1 PHYs.
But the register/bit layout is no specified as standard. At least I was not able
to find it. I assume, current layout is TJA11xx specific.

What would be the best place to do a test before the link is getting up?
Can it be done in the phy core, or it should be done in the PHY driver?

So far, no action except of logging these errors is needed.
