From: Xiaofei Tan <>

For some new boards with hip07 chipset we are required to
set PHY config registers differently. The hw property which
determines how to set these registers is in the PHY signal
attenuation readings.

This patch add an devicetree property, "hisilicon,signal-attenuation",
which is used to describe the signal attenuation of an board.
