After re-read MT7622 tread again, and according to the configurable
part of this IP, it is closer to 2500Base-X definition:
This defines a variant of 1000BASE-X which is clocked 2.5 times
faster, than the 802.3 standard giving a fixed bit rate of 3.125Gbaud.
If HSGMII means SGMII over clocked to 2.5Gbps, the introduction needs to
be changed to "support SGMII/1000Base-X/2500Base-x".
