The clock should be enabled first before attempting a rate change, and 
this also causes a more fundamental question: what is the sate of the 
clock when the PHY driver is probed, and is the reference clock feeding 
into the MDIO logic of the PHY.

By that I mean that if the reference clock was disabled, would the PHY 
still respond to MDIO reads such that you would be able to probe and 
identify it?

If not, your demv_clk_get_optional() is either too late, or assuming a 
prior state, or you are working around this in Device Tree by using a 
compatible string with the form 
"^ethernet-phy-id[a-f0-9]{4}\\.[a-f0-9]{4}$" in which case, this is a 
making assumptions about how the OF MDIO layer works which is not ideal.

I am preparing some patches that aim at enabling a given MDIO device's 
clock prior to probing it and should be able to post them by today.
