The PHY framework provides a set of APIs to control a PHY. This API is
derived from the linux version of the generic PHY framework.
Currently the API supports init(), deinit(), power_on, power_off() and
reset(). The framework provides a way to get a reference to a phy from the
device-tree.

changes since v3:
* make it possible for a phy device to handle multiple ports. The consequence
  is the intruction of struct phy which is is used as a parameter to all the
  functions of the API.
* Add generic_phy_get_by_index() and generic_phy_get_by_name() to get a reference
  to a phy port. Removed dm_generic_phy_get().
* Improved the documentation

With some nits below.

This is a really nice piece of work and a great addition to U-Boot.
