PHY devices on an MDIO bus can have their own regulators. This is currently
mostly modeled using the semi-standard phy-supply property on the MAC node.
This seems to be conceptually wrong though, as the MAC shouldn't need to
care about enabling the PHY regulator explicitly. Instead this should be
done by the core PHY/MDIO code.

This series introduces a new DT property at the PHY node level in mdio.yaml
and adds support for PHY regulator, then uses the new property on pumpkin
boards. It also addresses several issues I noticed when working on this

First four patches are just cosmetic improvements in source files we'll
modify later in this series.

Patches 5 and 6 modify the way PHY reset handling works. Currently the
probe() callback needs to be implemented to take the PHY out of reset but
PHY drivers without probe() can have resets defined as well.

Patches 7-11 address an issue where we probe the PHY for ID without
deasserting its reset signal. We delay the ID read until after the logical
device is created and resets have been configured.

Last four patches add the new DT property, implement support for PHY
regulator in phy and mdio code and set the new property in the DT file
for MediaTek's pumpkin boards.
