I neither have this board, nor do I care much about it. I just saw
the usual hardcoded atheros phy settings being done in the board
setup. That being said, you can find an example in:

But you have to figure out what you need. I guess the last four
writes are the rgmii delays which are handled by
   phy-mode = "rgmii-id";

The 0x8 to 0x1f is 1.8V RGMII voltage, you'd need to look at
the schematics if that voltage is actually used. A Zero means
1.5V. If it's using 2.5V then you don't have to do anything
because an external regulator is used.
