I'm pretty sure the generic phy was to allow the use of generic real
PHYs instead of having to add a new entry for each one.  Since the PHY
page/register layout is IEEE-specified, this *should* work for any old
10/100 PHY out there.  I think what Joakim is asking for (and I'm in the
same boat) is to have a 'fake' PHY so when we connect the TSEC to a
switch that doesn't implement MDIO, a happy response is returned during
driver initialization.  Correct me if I'm wrong here...
