I was my first idea but I don't found found the correct location in phy 
(driver or uclass)

to manage these generic property and the generic property "reset-gpios" 
was already

managed in eth driver, so I continue to patch the driver.

But I come back to this idea after your remark....

=> in linux these property are managed in


         parse DT node and add info in mdio


         called in  mdio_probe / mdio_remove

In my first search, I don't found the same level in the U-Boot drivers 
in drivers/net/phy/

but I miss the uclass defined in drivers/net/eth-phy-uclass.c

Finally I think I need to manage the generic binding property

(reset-gpios, reset-assert-us, reset-deassert-us) directly  in

=> drivers/net/mdio-uclass

The GPIO RESET will be managed in mdio  ops: pre_probe/ post_remove

as it is done in linux

warning: today post_remove ops don't exit in u-class.

Do you think it is the correct location ?

Do you think it should be a new serie (migrate the eqos property in mdio)

after this eqos is accepted

or I shoudl sent a new serie to replace this serie.
