dt-bindings: net: Add the old DT bindings for "fixed-link"

Per the upstream Linux kernel doc:

  Documentation/devicetree/bindings/net/ethernet-controller.yaml

There are two ways to describe a fixed PHY attached to an Ethernet
device. This updates our dt-bindings doc to add the old DT bindings.

......@@ -5,21 +5,37 @@ Some Ethernet MACs have a "fixed link", and are not connected to a
normal MDIO-managed PHY device. For those situations, a Device Tree
binding allows to describe a "fixed link".
Such a fixed link situation is described by creating a 'fixed-link'
sub-node of the Ethernet MAC device node, with the following
properties:
* 'speed' (integer, mandatory), to indicate the link speed. Accepted
values are 10, 100 and 1000
* 'full-duplex' (boolean, optional), to indicate that full duplex is
used. When absent, half duplex is assumed.
* 'pause' (boolean, optional), to indicate that pause should be
enabled.
* 'asym-pause' (boolean, optional), to indicate that asym_pause should
be enabled.
Note there are two ways to describe a fixed PHY attached to an
Ethernet device:
- The new DT binding, where 'fixed-link' is a sub-node of the Ethernet
MAC device node, with the following properties:
* 'speed' (integer, mandatory), to indicate the link speed. Accepted
values are 10, 100 and 1000
* 'full-duplex' (boolean, optional), to indicate that full duplex is
used. When absent, half duplex is assumed.
* 'pause' (boolean, optional), to indicate that pause should be
enabled.
* 'asym-pause' (boolean, optional), to indicate that asym_pause should
be enabled.
- The old DT binding, where 'fixed-link' is a property with 5 cells
encoding various information about the fixed PHY, in the form of
<phy_id, full-duplex, speed, pause, asym-pause>.
* 'phy_id', emulated PHY ID, choose any but unique to the all specified
fixed-links. Note U-Boot deliberately ignores the 'phy_id' and
unconditionally uses PHY_FIXED_ID.
* 'full-duplex', 0 for half duplex or 1 for full duplex
* 'speed', link speed in Mbits/sec, accepts only 10, 100 and 1000
* 'pause', 0 for no pause, 1 for pause
* 'asym-pause', 0 for no asymmetric pause, 1 for asymmetric pause
