OK for a define for the DeviceTree part.

You want one set of defines for the values in the 2nd cell and one other
set of defines for the 3rd cell?

I'm fine with a define for the second value (which is basically the enum
serdes_type I've defined at the beginning of the serdes driver) but I
don't see the point of defining the index of the SerDes. What would it
look like?

enum serdes_type {
SERDES1G = 1,
SERDES6G = 6,
}

#define SERDES1G_0 0
#define SERDES1G_1 1
#define SERDES1G_2 2
#define SERDES6G_0 0
#define SERDES6G_1 1

Then, e.g.:

&port5 {
phys = <&serdes 5 SERDES1G SERDES1G_0>
};

If you want a define for the pair (serdes_type, serdes_index), I don't
see how I could re-use it on the driver side but it makes more sense on the
DeviceTree side:

#define SERDES1G_0 1 0
#define SERDES1G_1 1 1
#define SERDES1G_2 1 2
#define SERDES6G_0 6 0
#define SERDES6G_1 6 1
