This should probably be made more general and we should define LED modes
that makes sense regardless of the PHY device, introduce a set of
generic functions for validating and then add new function pointer for
setting the LED configuration to the PHY driver. This would allow to be
more future proof where each PHY driver could expose standard LEDs class
devices to user-space, and it would also allow facilities like: ethtool
-p to plug into that.

Right now, each driver invents its own way of configuring LEDs, that
does not scale, and there is not really a good reason for that other
than reviewing drivers in isolation and therefore making it harder to
extract the commonality. Yes, I realize that since you are the latest
person submitting something in that area, you are being selected :)
