Time to reach into your engineering tool bag.

MDIO comms are always (well, maybe not always) done in software. By
this I mean that while the MDIO controllers are part of the Ethernet
controllers, coupling is loose. You should be able to bitbang this
provided the physical wires exist between the CPLD and the PHY. I guess
white-wiring the TSEC's MDC line isn't an option?

Stylistically, this leaves a lot to be desired, but if register 83
(better to use hex here) really maps to the MDC and MDIO pins, it should

Before messing with the TSEC driver, try talking with the PHY using the
'mii' U-boot commands. Also, pull out your oscilloscope and check that
the lines are toggling as you want. Once you're confident Bitbanged-MII
works, integrate it into TSEC.
