Can the pin be used for other things? Maybe it needs to be configured
for high impedance when it is used as a shared interrupt? If it does
not seem like a useful LED setting, i would drop it for the moment.

No rush. As i said, out of scope for this patchset. Just keep it in
mind. It should be something we can implement once in phylib, and then
all phy drivers which have LED support get it for free.
