TBH I'm just duplicating what allwinner is doing here, so I'm not that much
of an expert either. As for why things are working fine for you, likely the
phy default settings are good enough in most cases. It could even be that
the allwinner kernel code is wrong (although I remember having seen
the same exceptions for A33 in the bootloader code), and that my version
of the code is actually relying on the defaults being good enough.

In the end it boils down to just trusting that the allwinner code is
doing the right thing.
