I was hoping you'd try to do so on your SGMII board and report back
if it does any harm. I kind of have the impression that it is
_required_ only for single ended (R)GMII pins.

Also, I already have patches ready to separate 370 and XP. They are
quite compatible, but have some early differences of course. That way
we have some code duplication but won't pollute the file with early
setup for both.

I'd say, if it does no harm, enable it unconditionally.
