Subject[PATCH v2 0/2] ethtool: implement Energy Detect Powerdown support via phy-tunable
This changeset proposes a new control for PHY tunable to control Energy
Detect Power Down.

The `phy_tunable_id` has been named `ETHTOOL_PHY_EDPD` since it looks like
this feature is common across other PHYs (like EEE), and defining

The way EDPD works, is that the RX block is put to a lower power mode,
except for link-pulse detection circuits. The TX block is also put to low
power mode, but the PHY wakes-up periodically to send link pulses, to avoid
lock-ups in case the other side is also in EDPD mode.

Currently, there are 2 PHY drivers that look like they could use this new
PHY tunable feature: the `adin` && `micrel` PHYs.

This series updates only the `adin` PHY driver to support this new feature,
as this chip has been tested. A change for `micrel` can be proposed after a
discussion of the PHY-tunable API is resolved.

Changelog v1 -> v2:
* initial series was made up of 2 sub-series: 1 for kernel & 1 for ethtool
in userspace; v2 contains only the kernel series
