Maybe we should not have the type in DT and simply have an index. The
driver will now what the serdes type is anyway and the defines would be:

#define SERDES1G_0 0
#define SERDES1G_1 1
#define SERDES1G_2 2
#define SERDES6G_0 3
#define SERDES6G_1 4

The main drawback is that this requires one include file per soc.
