Hi Icenowy

We have been here before with the Atheros PHY. It did not correctly
implement one of the delay modes, until somebody really did need that
mode. So the driver was fixed. And we then found a number of device
trees were also buggy. It was painful for a while, but all the device
trees got fixed.

We should do the same here. Please submit patches for the device tree
files.
