This is not a valid use of DT, since this is configuration, not
describing the hardware. There has been recent extension in the UAPI
to allow user space to do this configuration. Please look at that

So this is a function of the track length between the MAC and the PHY?
How do you determine these values? There is no point having
configuration values if you don't document how to determine what value
should be used.
