Some systems using mdio-gpio may use gpio on message based busses, which
require sleeping (e.g. gpio from an I2C I/O expander).
Since this driver does not use IRQ handler, it is safe to use the
_cansleep suffixed gpio accessors.

Since this is down underneath the layer of an MII bus, you cannot
universally say that these routines are always called in a sleepable
The PHY layer, and the driver itself above that, might call these
routines from timers, interruptes etc.
The PHY library calls these routines from its state machine workqueue
for that reason, or from process context (when invoked via ethtool
ioctl). The only special case is phy_mac_interrupt() which is callable
from interrupt context,
