mode should be used if the same PHY can be configured in multiple modes. But
with phy_set_mode() and phy_calibrate() we could achieve the same.

Should these configuration come from the consumer driver? Can't the helper
functions be directly invoked by the PHY driver for the configuration.

IIUC the consumer driver will pass configuration options (or PHY parameters)
which will be validated by the PHY driver and in some cases the PHY driver can
modify the configuration options? And these modified configuration options will
again be given to phy_configure?

Looks like it's a round about way of doing the same thing.

Stub function when CONFIG_GENERIC_PHY is not set is also required.
