Can the MAC do 10 or 100? At the moment, you don't have anything
stopping the PHY anto-neg'ing 10Half. If the MAC does not fully
implement standard Ethernet, you need to tell the PHY driver about
this. That is what the validate call is about. phylink and phylib
knows what the PHY supports. It passes that list to the validate
call. You need to then remove all the modes the MAC does not support.

You again need to configure the MAC to the selected speed, duplex,
etc. If the link is down, you want to disable the MAC. You need this
for both MLO_AN_PHY and MLO_FIXED, because both specify speeds,
duplex, etc.
