So i need to disable the delay-configuration and set rgmii-id. Do i need to set only on mac or on the phy too?

Set flags to RK3568_GMAC_{R,T}XCLK_DLY_DISABLE and disable second regmap write. Board has a realtek phy which is defined in dts only with this:

&mdio1 {	
rgmii_phy1: ethernet-phy at 0 {	
	compatible = "ethernet-phy-ieee802.3-c22";	
  reg = <0x0>;

Can i check if the phy is recognized on mdio-bus and initialized? I see it in the devlist,but not sure if this means that it is completely initialized.

I more guess something like the last 2 is the problem as the delay-settings work in linux. But have not completely understood all parts. Imho pinmux is done on usage. So if i use

pinctrl-0 = <&gmac1m1_miim 		 &gmac1m1_tx_bus2 		 &gmac1m1_rx_bus2 		 &gmac1m1_rgmii_clk 		 &gmac1m1_rgmii_bus>;

The pinmux should be set,or am i wrong?

Afaik gmac1 uses fixed 125MHz clock (it came from cru like gmac0) as clock_in_out is set to output.

assigned-clocks = <&cru SCLK_GMAC1_RX_TX>, <&cru SCLK_GMAC1>;
assigned-clock-parents = <&cru SCLK_GMAC1_RGMII_SPEED>, <&cru CLK_MAC1_2TOP>;

I basicly use the config from linux,which i had mostly taken from vendors repo.

As the first version (used the other gmac for wan-port) worked,i guess the phy and mac driver is right. Same for clock driver and constant values.

I have none and if i'm not sure if i can trace it right because it's decades ago i made something with one.

So i search ways to check it in software as far as possible. Maybe there are ways to read out registers to check if phy is available and compare values with linux.
