Most of the PHY consumers need to call phy_power_on() as well as phy_init()
to get PHY working (if the PHY provider gives callback to both).
I think the idea would have been to separate out the initialization
related and power related
jobs (which may include setting up the PMUs and may be regulators ?)
But, i think it's true, if the PHY provider callback for both
phy_power_on() and phy_init()
then the consumer __has__ to call both to get things working.
