Do we really need this? We can already read/write phy registers using
/dev/phyx which imo is quite convenient since it can be accessed with
regular md/mw commands.

This of course is currently limited to the phys that are actually
registered, you can't just bang on MDIO addresses on which no phys are
registered. Maybe we could register all phys on a MDIO bus instead of
only the used ones?
