Yes, the interrupt status register's address differs even between PHYs
from the same vendor so making this somehow into a default handler would
mean to add even another callback that actually reads the register.

For simple PHY drivers, the .handle_interrupt() implementation would
mean 15-20 lines of code for a much more straightforward implementation.
I think that's fair.
