Current detection relies on an incorrect assumption that mt753x switch
is always used with mtk_eth_soc. It's a really hacky solution to use
dt properties that don't belong to this switch at all and I think this
approach should not be followed further by future code.
The usage of mac5 should be explicitly defined as a dt property
under mt753x node.
