Oh wait, your board have 2 different switch? So they both use the master
bit when used... Mhhh I need to think about this if there is a clean way
to handle this. The idea would be that one of the 2 dsa switch should
use the already defined mdio bus.

The problem here is that to use the internal mdio bus, a bit must be
set or 0 is read on every value (as the bit actually disable the internal
mdio). This is good if one dsa driver is used but when 2 or more are
used I think this clash and only one of them work. The gpio mdio path is
not affected by this. Will check if I can find some way to address this.
