the boot program; should be used in cases where the MAC address assigned to
the device by the boot program is different from the "local-mac-address"
-- nvmem-cells: phandle, reference to an nvmem node for the MAC address;
-- nvmem-cell-names: string, should be "mac-address" if nvmem is to be used;
- max-speed: number, specifies maximum speed in Mbit/s supported by the device;
- max-frame-size: number, maximum transfer unit (IEEE defined MTU), rather than
the maximum frame size (there's contradiction in the Devicetree
- phy-mode: string, operation mode of the PHY interface. This is now a de-facto
standard property; supported values are:
- * "internal"
+ * "internal" (Internal means there is not a standard bus between the MAC and
+ the PHY, something proprietary is being used to embed the PHY in the MAC.)
* "mii"
