Limited functionality is fine, but what is implemented should be
correct. And from what i see in the patch, it is hard to know if the
PHYs basic features are correctly determined. What does ethtool show?
Is 100BaseT being offered? Half duplex?

I think we are talking at cross purposes here. As far as i understand
T1L supports the data signals to be 2.4Vpp as well as the usual
1Vpp. This is something which can be negotiated in the same way as
master/slave, duplex etc.

I suspect you are talking about the PoE aspects. That is outside the
scope for phylib. PoE in general is not really supported in the Linux
kernel, and probably needs a subsystem of its own.
