That helper operates on the PHY device, not on the MAC device.
Cfr. what I stated in the cover letter:

    This can be considered the MAC counterpart of commit 9150069bf5fc0e86
    ("dt-bindings: net: Add tx and rx internal delays"), which applies to
    the PHY.  Note that unlike commit 92252eec913b2dd5 ("net: phy: Add a
    helper to return the index for of the internal delay"), no helpers are
    provided to parse the DT properties, as so far there is a single user
    only, which supports only zero or a single fixed value.  Of course such
    helpers can be added later, when the need arises, or when deemed useful
    otherwise.

Gr{oetje,eeting}s,
