Should'nt you be using the impedance values of 35 to 70 as the valid values here? that would be the hardware description, and the values to program corresponding to those are 0x00 to 0x1f. Right?

Rob: is'nt that the right way to do it?

Default child nodes are standard Ethernet PHY device
nodes as described in Documentation/devicetree/bindings/net/phy.txt
