Stupid question, if we have a "sfp" phandle, must one also specify a
managed = "in-band-status" property? Under what circumstances are not
these two things implying one another (SFF maybe)?

That would explain why the code path taken from phylink_of_phy_connect()
would not return 0 and we would indeed fail to connect to the built-in
DSA MDIO bus.
