See this discussion and the replies to it:

https://www.spinics.net/lists/netdev/msg630102.html

I think if mt7530 is using phylink for non-netdev ports (and it is), it
would be good to have standard bindings that phylink can parse. For
example, in lack of a "pause" specifier, will the CPU port use flow
control or won't it? Why? I think there's simply no good reason why
you'd omit 3 more lines now.
