Okay, I will split it in version 2.

This place does not use the per PHY reset properties as they are only used
after auto type ID detection. When you need a reset before auto type
ID detection,
it can only be done using the MDIO reset, and it only has
"reset-delay-us" property.
It will be a rather big change if all PHY nodes can choose if reset
should happen
before or after type ID detection.
