Actually, all fixups seems to do wring thing:
arch/arm/mach-davinci/board-dm644x-evm.c:915: phy_register_fixup_for_uid(LXT971_PHY_ID, LXT971_PHY_MASK,

Increased MII drive strength. Should be probably enabled by the PHY
driver.

arch/arm/mach-imx/mach-imx6q.c:167: phy_register_fixup_for_uid(PHY_ID_KSZ9021, MICREL_PHY_ID_MASK,
arch/arm/mach-imx/mach-imx6q.c:169: phy_register_fixup_for_uid(PHY_ID_KSZ9031, MICREL_PHY_ID_MASK,
arch/arm/mach-imx/mach-imx6q.c:171: phy_register_fixup_for_uid(PHY_ID_AR8031, 0xffffffef,
arch/arm/mach-imx/mach-imx6q.c:173: phy_register_fixup_for_uid(PHY_ID_AR8035, 0xffffffef,
arch/arm/mach-imx/mach-imx6sx.c:40: phy_register_fixup_for_uid(PHY_ID_AR8031, 0xffffffff,
arch/arm/mach-imx/mach-imx6ul.c:47: phy_register_fixup_for_uid(PHY_ID_KSZ8081, MICREL_PHY_ID_MASK,
arch/arm/mach-imx/mach-imx7d.c:54: phy_register_fixup_for_uid(PHY_ID_AR8031, 0xffffffff,
arch/arm/mach-imx/mach-imx7d.c:56: phy_register_fixup_for_uid(PHY_ID_BCM54220, 0xffffffff,
arch/arm/mach-mxs/mach-mxs.c:262: phy_register_fixup_for_uid(PHY_ID_KSZ8051, MICREL_PHY_ID_MASK,

Fix in some random manner PHY specific errata, enable clock output and
configure the clock skew.

arch/arm/mach-orion5x/dns323-setup.c:645: phy_register_fixup_for_uid(MARVELL_PHY_ID_88E1118,

Enable LED. Should be done in DT if supported.

arch/powerpc/platforms/85xx/mpc85xx_mds.c:305: phy_register_fixup_for_id(phy_id, mpc8568_fixup_125_clock);
arch/powerpc/platforms/85xx/mpc85xx_mds.c:306: phy_register_fixup_for_id(phy_id, mpc8568_mds_phy_fixups);
arch/powerpc/platforms/85xx/mpc85xx_mds.c:311: phy_register_fixup_for_id(phy_id, mpc8568_mds_phy_fixups);

Fix in some random manner PHY specific errata, enable clock output and
configure the clock skew.

drivers/net/ethernet/dnet.c:818: err = phy_register_fixup_for_uid(0x01410cc0, 0xfffffff0,

Enable LED. Should be done in DT if supported.

drivers/net/usb/lan78xx.c:2071: ret = phy_register_fixup_for_uid(PHY_KSZ9031RNX, 0xfffffff0,
drivers/net/usb/lan78xx.c:2078: ret = phy_register_fixup_for_uid(PHY_LAN8835, 0xfffffff0,

enable clock output and configure the clock skew.

As we can see, all of used fixups seem to be wrong. For example micrel
PHY errata should be fixed in one place for all devices. Not only for
some iMX6 SoC. I used this option for iMX, because i can test it.

A lot of work is needed to fix all of them. I just do not have enough
time to do it.

As soon as all PHY driver support all needed bits used in this fixups,
we can use drivers on top of fixups. Since changes made by fixups will
be overwritten by PHY drivers any way. The Kconfig option is needed only for
developers who has enough resource to investigate this issues and
mainline needed changes.
