I will change this to phydev_info

If the property is not found what would we look up?  The property 
missing to me indicates that the phy is not adding the delay for that path.

If these properties are not present then the delay should not be set by 
the device driver.

This is why I return -EINVAL.  Maybe I should return -ENODATA instead.
