Yes, it was my first idea as well. But this switch allows direct MDIO
access to the PHYs and this PHY driver could be used without DSA driver.
Not sure if we should support both variants?

Beside, the Port 1 need at least one more quirk. The pause souport is
announced but is not working. Should we some how clear Puase bit in the PHY and
tell PHY framework to not use it? What is the best way to do it?

Regards,
Oleksij
