Ehh this is not really a situation. We really need a way to describe PHY
package. (In the sense of device that expose multiple PHY package, as
they can be treated as single one but they are actually in bulk of 2-4-5
PHY)

qca807x is one example, quickinc is trying to push another PHY with just
a similar implementation and Maxime Chevallier just pointed out that Marvell
Alaska 88e1543 PHY also have this kind of configuration.

I feel defining PHY in subnode is a MUST and using ethernet-phy might be
confusing to describe PHY package (so I think a brand new node name
might be a better solution)

About the reg, I wonder if it would like it more if the PHY package node
would include the reg as the first address of the package and the reg
property as a list of all the reg the PHY package use.

Something like this?

        ethernet-phy-package@1 {
            compatible = "ethernet-phy-package";
            #address-cells = <1>;
            #size-cells = <0>;
            reg = <1>, <2>, <3>, <4>;

            global-phys = <&phy4>;
            global-phy-names = "base";

            ethernet-phy@1 {
              compatible = "ethernet-phy-ieee802.3-c22";
              reg = <1>;
            };

            phy4: ethernet-phy@4 {
              compatible = "ethernet-phy-ieee802.3-c22";
              reg = <4>;
            };
        };

Thanks a lot for the review and I hope we can find a good and correct
way to model this. Just hope we don't have to add all kind of proprerty
to describe the idea of PHY package. (I think the current example makes
it very clear that the PHY under the node are all part of a single piece
on the device)
