We know if the PHY should be left up because of WoL. So that is not an
issue. We can also put the PHY into lower power mode, before making
the call to put the PHY into reset. If the reset is not implemented,
the PHY stays in low power mode. If it is implemented, it is both in
lower power mode and held in reset. And if the regulator is provided,
the power will go off.

Does the datasheet have numbers for in lower power mode and held in
reset? We only have an issue if held in reset when in low power mode
consumes more power than simply in low power mode.
