Yes.  This is not a 1Gbps PHY.  Max is 100Mbps.

Why would we need 2?  The SFP core would need to know that the LOS is 
connected to the PHY.

The PHY is strapped to configure the LED_1 as a GPIO input.  I am not 
seeing a register that we can force this configuration.

Data sheet says

Note: To enable 100Base-FX Signal Detection on LED_1 (pin #24), strap 
SD_EN = '1'

So we can read the straps to see if the PHY is connected as the LOS 
input and set the polarity.  But if we are in fiber mode and that pin is 
not strapped for LOS then this setting takes no affect on the PHY.  So 
even reading the straps just allows us to bypass the polarity write.
