The ax88796b comes with its own integrated (buggy) PHY needing this
workaround. This PHY has its own ID which is not known by Linux, so it is
using the genphy driver as fallback.

We could do that - but I dont't see the point in creating a PHY driver
that is only ever used by this MAC driver, just to add a single line to
the genphy driver. If the same PHY might be used with a different MAC,
you definitely would have a point there, though.
