I think this falls into Andrew's "don't specify anything" category,
which means that we should default to the maximum speed for the
port - which is in this case quite clearly fixed at whatever the
internal link actually is.

>From the get_caps() function, the fastest speed apparently supported is
1Gbps. I'm guessing the CPU port is one of ports 2..5 on xrx200 and
1..5 on xrx300 - in which case, PHY_INTERFACE_MODE_INTERNAL is likely
to be selected, which seems appropriate given what you've said above.
(PHY_INTERFACE_MODE_INTERNAL will be the first interface type found
that will give the highest speed as it permits any speed given in the
mac_capabilities.)
