I'll move more code out of the functions.

I don't know. I don't have hardware to debug
the serdes interface further. I only have a test board with mt7622 soc
connect via SGMII/2500basex to a realtek phy (rtl8221).

Maybe the maintainers from mediatek could share some knowledge if the
SGMII block supports 1000/2500basex autoneg?

At least with the public available datasheets (mt7531, mt7622) doesn't
explain it further.
I could also imagine we need to modify the page register
(PCS_SPEED_ABILITY) and link timer to get autoneg for
1000basex/2500basex working.

Best,
lynxis
